Hi I don't seem to be doing very well and feel useless at the moment I have a chicken who is clearly poorly and dont really know why or how to help her. She hasnt been laying for a few weeks. She has now gone off her food and is drinking less (I have even resorted to sugar and water in a syringe today). Today I gave her a warm bath and was horrified at how skinny she has become, I now realise she only looked fatter because she ruffles her feathers. Her comb has gone quite deflated, although still a bright red, however near her face has lost alot of colour (due to no energy?) Her chest feels swollen like an egg shape but not hard, Im not sure if this making her loose her balance when she starts to fall asleep, she sort of wakes herself up as she topples forward. Shes in the livingroom at the moment, even the dog doesnt seem intimidated by her and is leaving her alone! I have wondered if shes egg bound but apart from this bulge on her chest I cant feel anything, and theres not much meat on her to hide anything. Any advice gratefully recieved, incidently the other chicken I have is fine, but we did loose one a couple of months back with a prolapse uterus......chickens seem harder and sadder work than I thought they would be!
