I noticed my hen was acting funny the other day, she was just showing signs. I kept an eye on her the whole day, when I noticed she wasn't getting back to normal that evening I picked her up. Immediately she started throwing up water, her crop was so full of water, just picking it up caused it to over flow in a way. She's separated, just kinda that usual sick chicken symptoms, just, not wanting to do much because she's not feeling well, a bit puffed up. Her combs not as bright, nor her face. Poop is obviously extremely watery, very little actual poop bits in it. She had access to water for the first day alone, until she just would not stop drinking, so I took it away. I've been giving a pea sized amount of Monistat in her beak incase its some type of yeast in her crop daily, this is the second day. I also am giving her nutridrench. Getting the Monistat in her beak is hard, so she's still fighting. She's one of my girls who prefers to be alone and do her own thing, so she still tries to get away from us, which is another good sign she's fighting. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this? I plan on worming her with topical Ivermectin Friday incase its worms, but I'm holding out to see if she improves with the Monistat.
