    Hi, In June, one of my hen developped a water belly. She swelled.The vet pumped a lot of red liquid with a syringe and We thought that she was going to die. Since this date she loses weight but she didn't die. We don't understand. If it was the liver or the heart we think she had die.
    For 4 months now!! The hen is very slim but she eat. She's weak.The comb is down, white and purple.The circumference of eyes are also white and purple. but she's alive and she eats like others.
    If someone know what she could have.
    Thanks.
