1) What type of bird , age and weight. Barred rock hen, 8 months old, don't know her weight, but she's good-sized. 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Feathers puffed up, opens mouth to breathe in, listless, not eating or drinking and today I realized she doesn't have a tongue and it looks like the tip of it is sticking up at the back of her throat - there's something pointed and white back there. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? I noticed she wasn't acting right on Monday in the afternoon. 4) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. Nothing else I can find; her head felt warmer than normal this morning. 5) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. No idea 6) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. I suspected sour crop, so have given her 3 cc's of epsom salt water every morning with a syringe and yesterday i gave her 3 cc's of poultry nutri-drench; this morning gave her 3 cc's of vitamin/electrolyte water. She is not eating or drinking anything on her own. 7) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. No poop since Tuesday, and it was the usual dark green/grey color. 8) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? epsom salt water (1 tsp. dissolved in 1/2 c. water), poultry drench and vi-tal in water; Vet Rx: a few drops in mouth and under wings. 9 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? There isn't a local vet who will work with chickens, so I will do what I can myself. 10) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. I will try to get one and post it 11) Describe the housing/bedding in use: 12x8 insulated coop with temporary 12x12 run - normal run is 24x24. Pine shavings on floor of coop. Until this week, they haven't been outdoors due to the frigid temps. I have this hen in the coop, but separated from the others in a 2x3 area I have an 8 month old barred rock hen who has been open-mouthed breathing for the past few days. She was standing with her feathers all puffed up on Monday, and that's when I noticed the open-mouthed breathing and that she wasn't eating the BOSS I put out. I felt her crop on Tuesday morning and there was food in it, so I wondered about sour crop, and started giving her epsom salt in water and left water with ACV for her, but she isn't eating or drinking and she hasn't pooped since Tuesday, when she also laid an egg. On Wednesday, her crop was empty. I've done the epsom salts 3 times and have been using a syringe to give her poultry drench and vitamin water. I've never had chickens, so haven't ever looked in one's mouth before all of this, but this morning when I was putting the syringe in, there was slimy brown stuff in her mouth which I think is the poultry drench that didn't get swallowed, and as I was trying to clean that out I saw this white, pointed thing in the back of her throat. It wasn't until that moment that I realized she has no tongue! I checked my RIR hen's mouth so I would know what it's supposed to look like and I'm wondering if it's possible she could have swallowed her own tongue. There is an almond-sized lump between her waddles - is that supposed to be there? Could she have a tumor even though she's only 8 mo. old? Her head felt warmer than usual this morning too. I'm not sure what to do at this point. Can anyone help?
