    Hi everyone,

    I have a barred rock who isn't doing very well. I've had her isolated since yesterday, and was wondering if droppings that look like this are indicative of anything in particular??

    She seems to be eating okay (boiled some shards of carrot and celery in water with some oatmeal and yogurt), and seems a bit perkier today.

    I'd be so grateful for any information!

    Is that really bright yellow or a trick of the light? Did she get into something? How is her crop? I think those are all the questions someone will want to know who could help you more.

    It's kind of a chalky yellow/white, and just a little more yellow than the wet shavings. The chalky yellow is very stringy, too. Her crop yesterday was large and...gushy? Today it is much smaller, but it is warmer on the right (with the crop) than the left side (normal?). Her droppings today seem more white...good sign??

    Yeah, I've examined it so many times I should just hang it on the back door [​IMG]. The actual "content" is a green-brown color and uniformly grainy, which seems normal. She seemed lethargic and a little pale, which caused me to pay closer attention in the first place. She's about 2 years old (came with our home purchase), and had no back feathers/tailfeathers since this winter until a couple of months ago when she finally started growing them back. But she's been feisty throughout everything...until now. She does seem a bit perkier today, though.

    I just went to check on her and found something that looked like an oblong (2-3") sac with lots of folds that looked like chicken skin. Any ideas?? It smelled exactly like raw chicken smells.
