I have a 2 year old bard rock that has been on her roost for about three days and unless she comes down to eat at night she hasn't eaten at all. She looks very sad and weak. I had another bard rock pass away about three weeks ago for no known reason. Help!

I would take her down, and check her crop to see if it is empty, feel her keel (breast) bone for any weight loss, check her vent for any diarrhea, and look her over for any nasal or eye drainage that may be symptoms of a respiratory illness. She will probably need some electrolyte water (SaveAChick) is good, or you can make your own. Offer her a scrambled chopped up egg, and you may need to give her fluids by a dropper. Has she been wormed recently, or have you added any new birds?

Thank you very much, I will give that a try. No new chicks in the flock.
