Question from a friend of mine: Yesterday evening one of my 20 month old hens became really ill and I have never seen anything like this nor could I find any info on it in my books. Has anyone heard of this: Yesterday evening I noticed she was wet around the mouth and down her front feathers, her crop was distended and when I picked her up she felt very light. When I felt her crop, water just poured from her mouth! It happened three times about 10 minutes apart, I don't think she had time to drink that must in 10 minutes. I separated her from others for the night. She drank all her water but had not eaten this morning. She still looks wet around the face but the body had dried. My other three 20 month old hens haven't been laying regularly. One of them seemed a little wet this morning and they are eating, but not as voraciously as is their habit. I couldn't catch my pullets to check them closely, but they looked fine and are eating voraciously. Does anyone know what is happening or what I should do?
