I have a 4 mo old hen who was fine then last night did not put herself up with all the other chickens. It was dark, so of course she would allow me to pick her up and put her in the chic house. This morning she was laying on the ground on her side. I have seperated her. She feels light, she doesnt smell outwardly, but my hands did smell after holding her. She is puffed up and unbalanced. She will stand for a bit but Instead of laying down she will just fall on her face. She is not eating. I am figuring worms so I fixed a waterer full of wazine for the whole chicken house and force fed her some. Anybody have any ideas if it may be something else. havent seen any bloody poop in the chicken house for cocci. Are there any emergency worm treatments or additional things I could do? Ive been searching posts but none seem to cover all these symptoms.
