    Last night all my girls were fine when I put them to bed.

    This morning when I went to let the girls out I noticed one Rhode Island Red laying in the coop. She didn't respond by moving but her eyes were open. I moved her to a separate crate and have since gotten Vet Rx and some antibiotics, but haven't administered any antibiotics yet.

    She had diarrhea a few days ago, but by the next day had cleared up and she wasn't acting oddly, I made sure she was eating and drinking and thought she was fine. None of the other hens are exhibiting any symptoms.

    I have cleaned her butt and tried to get her to drink but she wont take anything and hasn't gotten up at all, she moved into a different position but thats all. After I gave her the VetRx she still keeps her eyes closed but is now drooling some of the mucus.

    Any Ideas, suggestions would be so appreciated!!!

    Thanks!

    My RIR is having same symptoms. I gave her vet rx tonight. Did it help with yours? What was the outcome?
