I discovered our Australorp, Norbert, this morning, lying near the fence with her feathers all fluffed up, not moving. Thought at first she was dead, then saw she was breathing, not really shallowly, but very slowly. She doesn't appear to be injured (no blood or visible damage), and was fine yesterday. I figured maybe it was hypothermia - the phoenix hens try to chase our younger hens out of the house at night if we don't close them in. Moved Norbert into the hen house near the lightbulbs, nestled with straw. Had to do appointments today (we homeschool our 4 kids, and Wednesdays are busy). Left just before 1 p.m., got back around 6:30 p.m. Checked Norbert before we even went into the house. Norbert is still all fluffed up, breathing okay, but not responding beyond lifting her head when stroked and spoken to. To the best of my knowledge Norbert hasn't eaten or drunk anything all day. Does anyone recognize this set of symptoms? Do I need to isolate her from the others? We have powdered avian antibiotics, but how do I get them into her if she isn't drinking? Help! Feel free to call me if you like. I can't always get online frequently. 509.218.2940 Ask for Dawn. I can call you back on my nickel if that would help. I would so appreciate any help anyone could give me with this!! Thanks in advance.
