    My sons 3.5 old Gold Laced pullet is in distress this morning. She was fine yesterday, but when I let them out this morning her wings are droppy and spread open a bit. She just wants to lay on the ground. Please help, I don't want to loose my sons favorite little pullet!!!

    They are housed well and feed organic grower. They were hatched and raised here, no foreign birds introduced.[​IMG]

    Check her abdomen for and egg. Feel for a hard mass.

    It might be botulism poisoning mine had it a month ago. I force fed it water and watered down food. I also ground up garlic cloves and forced that down with a little apple cider vinegar. good luck.

    Thanks guys. She was not egg bound, and she passed away an hour ago. It was very sad, she will be missed dearly.
