Hi all,
I have a 9 week old Welsummer pullet that this morning started be lethargic. Just lying down and not behaving normally. Eating a little... Have not seen her poop yet.
Won't even move much if a fellow chicken steps on her. If I pick her up and put her down, she stands for a bit, but then lies down again... What can I do? Weird!
I would separate her from everyone else so she isn't trampled. Maybe give her some electrolytes. Its very difficult to help without more information. What type of feed do you use? How long has she had these symptoms? Have you checked for sour crop/mites, fleas, lice? Have they been wormed? Could they have cocci? With chooks, there are so many possibilities. Check her over for any pests/ injuries/ crop issues, and report back. It also helps to know what the poops are looking like. Good luck with your girl, hope she feels better soon!
