Came home today and she was laying under coop. I picked her up and seemed life less. I have removed her from the coop and have her in a pet carrier at the moment. She moves her head some but has not walked? Any Ideas what could be wrong.
Coccidiosis usually strikes chickens less than 10 weeks old, but it can occur in older chickens if a new strain has been brought in by new chickens, if chickens have changed homes, and on peoples shoes or car tires. Treatment is 2 tsp liquid for 5-7 days. You may need to coax her to drink it or put a little on her chick feed.
