2 days ago, my 2-1/2 year brahma did not come out of the coop, when I went to her, the eyes were shut, her beak is open slight. No discharges are to be seen, no breathing disturbances, but I can't get her to drink or eat, has had about a teaspoon of water in 2 days. I live in the Southern VA area, weather has been rainy, cold, and the brahmas are molting. Could getting cold cause this? I put her in a crate, brought her in the house, and a general look, she is fluffy, and alert (other than the eyes closed), moves around. Does she need an antibiotic? Any suggestions? My thought is that she got cold, and could this affect her organs? Any input is greatly appreciated, I am 50/50 to take her to the vet and have her euthanized.
