Hello all, I just wanted to say that I am very thankful for this website. I have had 3 sick chickens this winter. I am hoping with the warming weather that things will improve. My first sick chicken was getting better and then a hawk killed her. My second chicken I noticed wasn't acting right and figured she had an impacted crop. This website gave me great advice to get the impaction passed and she is doing well. I am just trying to get her to gain some weight now. And now I noticed a chicken walking slowly and barely eating / drinking and she had green / white poop stuck all to her feathers. I think she might be egg bound. I brought her in last night gave warm water soaks. She doesn't eat enough to even fill her crop. I did a vent check but couldn't feel anything other than what felt like "insides" But I think her backside feels hard. Had to syringe her some crushed tums mixed with water because she is not eating or drinking much. I sure hope she pulls through.
