1) What type of bird , age and weight. Buff Orpington hen, the entire flock is 22 weeks old 2) What is the behavior, exactly. She has been sitting in the nest box for a day and a half now. She sits, stands, turns around, wipes her beak on the side of the box. I don't know if she has been down to eat or drink since (I did get her to take some water just now, looking at her comb she seems dehydrated). She won't take food from my hand (the others will). Yesterday she seemed mildly bothered by me petting her. Today she is more calm, depressed, and weaker. Her eyes are still bright. She has enough spunk to resist when I try to look in her beak or otherwise mess with her. She seems just a bit droopy when she stands, but legs are strong. 3) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. none 4) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. I wonder about a crop problem. Her crop feels squishy (not tight or hard), not FULL but certainly a good amount of something in there, and spread-out, like her crop has lost it's form. The other chickens crops feel smallish, full and ball-shaped. If she hasn't eaten in a day and a half, shouldn't her crop be empty? She could certainly have found and eaten a staple or other horrible thing in the yard. 5) What has the bird been eating (specifically, ie brand of feed and type, treats, etc) and drinking? Chicks starter/grower until about a month and a half ago when I got a butt-load of free barley and stopped buying bagged feed ( yeah, I know...) Also they have been free ranging since around 9 weeks old. Veggie scraps from the kitchen, lots of fresh kale from the garden. Well water (potable) always available. I have not provided grit since they can get what they like from the yard. HOWEVER, this particular hen hardly ever left the coop until just a week ago. 6) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Seems more liquidy and with white streaks. 7) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Massaged her crop. 8 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? I will treat her myself. 9) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. 10) Describe the housing/ size and how many birds using it. 8x10 foot room built inside a barn. 19 chickens. Free range during the day. They like to hang out in the barn too. 11) What kind of bedding in use? straw 12) Have you checked for lice / mites? I check frequently and have not seen lice or mites. 13) Have you wormed your birds? no 14) When you hold your bird, does it feel heavy or light? same as the other hens They are not vaccinated. The interesting thing about this hen, is that she grew a huge comb weeks ago. The other hens combs are just starting to grow now. I don't think that means anything, but thought maybe I should mention it. We just started to get eggs 2 weeks ago, but I don't know if this hen in particular is laying. This is my first flock, and everything has gone so well up to now. I feel overwhelmed with the possibilities of what could be wrong. I have the Chicken Health Handbook, and have read the whole thing (several times ).
