    My chicken has green diarrhea, no smell. I don't think she has Merck's as there is no paralysis. The eats little but losing weight sand strength fast. I don't know if we have worms in Colorado that might affect the chickens. My other chickens are okay but I have separated the sick one. Any suggestions?

    Can you take her to a vet?
    How old is she?
    Have you tried any type of treatment(s) so far?

    Green poop can be an indication of not eating (starvation), bacterial infection and sometimes worms or cocci, so taking a fresh poop sample to your vet for testing would be a good idea.

    If she is not eating, then she most likely is not drinking. Offer some poultry vitamins in her water dry to get her hydrated. Once she is drinking give her normal feed with some extra protein like egg or tuna.

    Keep us posted.
