    Hi everyone,

    Here is my chicken condition:

    On the day 1 she was good until 3 PM and after that she was standing still most of the time.
    And when try walking she was feeling imbalanced. sometimes she was stretching one leg and weakly put it down.
    she opens wings a little bit. we feel that she was doing it to control her balance. Also pulling her leg a little bit on the ground instead of walking properly.
    She was throwing up water a little bit for a few times. she did not want to eat, she just drank a little water for a few times.
    The only thing she was eating a little bit was mud. We did not stop her thinking that she is self healing. By 8 PM she was a little bit better so we took her to her home and waited until morning to see if she is the same we take her to a animal clinic.

    On the day 2 we were luckily that she was normal and good all day long and We did not see anything suspicious.

    On the day 3 which was a relatively hot day she was good until 3-4 PM we saw that she was standing still for a long time . I did not see whether she was throwing up or not but she was standing a long time.
    this time she could eat a little bit and she was drinking more water than the first day.


    Please tell me what I should do at this moment? if you know any treatment or cure.

    Thanks alot
