I have a year and a half old rir. She was acting normal this am. This afternoon she is just standing still with her tail drooped. She free-ranges in my large fenced yard. We have mushrooms all over the place. Could she be sick from them? She wont eat treats but is drinking.The rest of the 6 are acting fine.

Pacific NW- where the Douglas Firs grow
Could be worms, mites/lice, or other problems.

But I would first check her crop to see that it is empty as it should be in the morning, check her over for mites/lice under the wings and around the vent. Mites look like black pepper and lice are straw colored.

If she ate a mushroom I am not sure what it would do, I'm sorry.
