We lost a chicken a month or so ago when we were out of town. Our neighbor who was watching them said was laying on the ground with her eyes closed and she finally passed a few hours later. I have another hen that is doing the same thing. This morning when I let them out, she didn't want to get off her nesting bar. I gave her some water and finally coaxed her down. She could barely get down without falling and had a hard time getting down the ramp. She is very lethargic. Now she is just standing in a corner of her coop with her eyes closed. I have no idea what to do or what is wrong with her. Yesterday she was fine and laying and today she is on her death bed. Any ideas or help????? I am afraid we are about to loose her!
