Help!!!! I am missychicky's mom trying to take care of her chickens while she is at camp..... so of course one of our hens has become very sick. I think I am doing the right thing but could use some assurance. ) What type of bird , age and weight. Black sex link about 3 years old 2) What is the behavior, exactly. pooping at various times, clear liquid with yellow goo. milky white liquid, white with green bits. if you touch inside the vent at all she prolaspes. Milky fluid almost seems to be coming from the tissue around the inside of the vent. I got an egg yolk out of the egg laying part. Poop part looks ripped and traumatized. Large white plaques on the inside of the vent. Some rub off and are grainy. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? About a week or possibly a bit longer. Apparently she was laying bloody eggs for a while. I then had two broken eggs in the coop (one per day) brought her in about 3 days ago (I have been up day and night, am losing track of time) when laid a broken egg outside of the coop and it was painful for her. 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? Not exactly, just finished treating one hen for sour croup however. 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. She has a dislocating toe, but I think it is unrelated, it does not seem to bother her 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. I think we left some veggies in the coop too long and they went moldy 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. She seems to be drinking a bit. Gave her a bit of cat food (a rav fav) and she nibbled at it. is now sitting on the desk pecking at rice. doesnt want to move, seems tired, but not exactly lethargic 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. I have had everything- blood, clear with yellow, white and streaky, milky white, clear with white 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? I am completely broke so I have had to improvise alot - I hope it is helping not hurting. I have: given her warm baths ( she seems to like them, but it is hard to warm her up afterwards), keeping her in the dark, afrin (to reduce the swelling and the prolapse), econozol (rx anti fungal ointment), added white vinegar to her bath, wiping her vent with vinegar water, tetracycline mixed with milk (pleh!), "milked" the white fluid. That is all I can remember at this point -oh I just gave her an oz of electrolyte water which perked her up a bit. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? I have to do this myself, I can not afford a vet. I HAVE to keep this chicken going at least until missychicky gets home tomorrow night. My guess is that she has/had egg peritonitis, straining has caused her to prolaspe her vent. The moldy food has given her vent gleet, and I am not sure, but the poop part might be ripped. She only prolaspes when she strains I have ACV, epsom salts, diflucan tabs, tetracycline powder, 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help.
