    So I just checked for an egg and I didn't feel anything but it did cause diarrhea. Her stool is yellow with green seaweed colored chunks. Her fever is 108. Help! She still can't walk and gasps for air

    My condolences,always heartbreaking when our pets die. My guess would be possible peritonitis(internal laying is one cause,which results in a bacterial infection) due to egg colored poop,green indicates not eating. Usually peritonitis is fatal. Her fever was in the normal range,chickens temp ranges from about 103(young birds)-107 adults.

    Another possible cause could have been impacted crop.
