    Henny had mites but she was dusted and we wormed her but Henny has stopped being able to walk properly and her poop is yellow. She can barely stand without leaning on something. When she walks she falls over. I am reaaaaaaalllly worried. Anyone got an idea what she has? she has been wormed.

    well, sad new is Henny put up a fight, she got better, then got worse. Unfortunately she didn't make it all the way and passed away in her sleep.

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. [​IMG]

    Yellow, foamy poop can be a sign of coccidiosis or parasites. Coccidiosis can be identified most easily by bloody poops, lethargy, and a general huddled and puffed look.

    Corid is the treatment for coccidiosis.

    I would treat the entire flock as soon as possible, just to be safe.

    Are any of your other birds exhibiting symptoms?
