    Has anyone ever listened to their chickens heartbeat? Well I have read 150 + depending on the size of the chicken. Well I have a sick chicken, and I have been regularly listening with a stethoscope, and I think she may be on her last evening. It is slowed considerably and it is having irregularities [​IMG] I have tried everything I knew. And nothing has seemed to help. Here is the link to my original post

    I read your thread and didn't post, because I have nothing to contribute. I've had chickens almost 19 years now and sometimes they decline and die for something I never know of.

    I'm very sorry she is doing so poorly.
