    I have about 8 chickens in a large clean pen. One of the chickens got sick and was just laying around. Her comb started to look pale and not real read as usual. I put her by herself for a couple of days. After a few I noticed that she was not moving around and was pooping on herself. I picked her up and gave a little squeez and she pooped green diarea. After a couple more days she died. What kind of medication should I give the others so they dont meet the same fate? None seem sick.

    Not a whole lot you can do now...I wouldn't give any medicines to any of the other ones because she might have died from a natural cause.
    Did you feel your dead bird's crop? If it felt full, she might have had impacted crop. Sometimes bright green diarrhea means that the food is passing too quickly through her system.
