I woke up and went to care for my old english bantams.
I noticed the hen laying like this with her mouth drowning water and blood


Right now i have her in my hands hoping for her to come through

I agree with the heat lamp, is she lethargic? How is she doing now?

Poor hen. I am not sure what the source of the blood is. Did you check her over for any wounds around the neck or breast that caused internal bleeding? Or maybe she ate something sharp. Does she show discomfort, when you press her crop? I wish I knew how to help more.

Not an attack and blood coming from both ends all of a sudden? Sounds too serious. Sometimes a mercy euthanasia is better for the bird.

could she have bonked her head? Flown into a wall or something? Maybe it's a silly question, but I am glad she is doing better
