I'm dealing with a rescue chicken and I'm getting VERY freaked out for the rest of my flock... this chicken was pretty much unloaded on me without notice and I don't have a good way to separate her from the rest of my birds. She has been through hell, I'm sure - certainly battled a bunch of roos... Her back feathers are missing, her head feathers are missing, her legs look scaley, she's missing half her toenails... I have a date with the bird-vet on Saturday and they told me not to treat anything with home remedies until they look at her. But this morning, as I was guarding her and some babies while they eat and drink (I have to fend off some of my other chickens so they don't bully them out of their meal) I saw this poor hen take a HUGE dump!!! It was AUDIBLE and when I walked over to have a look it was a huge pile of poop - possibly 2/3 cup of poop which mostly looked like wet food, like maybe it wasn't digested properly??? More than anything I'm concerned about my flock as they are all young and healthy and beautiful... But this poor hen needs SOMEONE to help her! Does anyone have any thoughts? If I managed to create a separate living spot for her, is it too late anyway (she has been mixed with my flock for a couple weeks)?? I only have a backyard flock and don't have lots of room to create another secure run for her. EEEEK!!
