(Original post under this) Well, this morning I took Princess to the vet. We're trying her on baytril for possible infection and meloxycam for inflamation. I opted not to get a fecal or xrays done until we see how the meds do. I'm hoping that'll fix her up. ($126 for just the visit, trim and meds!!) She said it COULD be Mareks disease but there's no sure way to test for it (that she knew of). She said the first symptom is not walking, which I knew. I also had her beak trimmed at the end as it was getting long and jagged and interfering with her ability to eat. That helped a lot as far as her being able to gobble things down!! I'll come back if I see a change for the better (or worse, God forbid)!! Thanks for all the well wishes!! Hello chicken lovers, I have a very beautiful, very old white bantam cochin who is passing green poops. I think I read where this could mean she is not eating enough; is that right? What else could it mean? I'm afraid her body is just giving out now. She prefers to just sit in one spot and is panting a little (although my vet told me once that they will do that when they are resting on their breast bone). I had to go away for a week and had somebody take care of her at their house while I was away (she's an indoor hen). Before I left, I noticed she was resting an awful lot and thought it was age related. But, since I picked her up yesterday, she hasn't walked at all except when the dog went to snif her. Her lungs are clear and I'm hand feeding her everything I can think of that she likes to get her strength back. (I'm pretty sure her sitter didn't make sure she was eating like I do). She has an appetite, but doesn't eat a lot. Any further thoughts on all this. BTW, I don't know how old she is. She came from an auction to the farm where I was working and from there to me. But she hasn't layed an egg since I got her last Oct. and I know they will stop laying when they get old. Sorry this is so long! Ha! Right after I posted this, she got up and walked about 4 steps! I'm hoping that's a good sign!!! I love her so much!
