Hi there, everyone. I have a year old or so Serama hen who has previously been healthy other than mites. She has been looking a little droopy since day before yesterday, and has been flicking her head as though she has mites. HOWEVER, I just treated my flock for mites with frontline and wormed with wazine and gave corid for possible cocci in a couple of birds. I decided to just monitor her. So tonight I checked on her and she still looked huddled down and had her eyes closed, but NOW she has a dark comb. So I knew I had to address the issue for sure. I took her out and felt her crop -- empty. She seems to have a pasted butt, which I'll have to take care of. BUT here is the really weird part. I opened her beak to check for odor or other abnormality, and saw something really weird. Her tongue looks really strange. Instead of the usual flat, pointy tongue chickens are supposed to have, hers almost seems to be curled up into her mouth. It's not like there's a string attached that she swallowed or something, it's just like the end of her tongue is almost like . . . a ball now. It is extremely strange. It kind of reminds me of the type of "cauliflower ear" type injuries that boxers get. Here are some pictures. The round thing you see in her mouth is her tongue. Just a picture of her in general: I'm sorry about the poor quality, but somebody else has my camera right now so my computer camera is the best I've got. If anybody can help me understand this and what to do about it, please tell me! Thank you!!!
