Glad you could join the flock! Sorry to hear your hen is sick
Please do post in the emergency section with as much detail as possible. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
A few things you should add so members can you help best is ~ What is her poop like? Is she of laying age and when did she last lay? Have you checked for an egg that could have gotten stuck? Is she eating drinking? What good does she get? Is her crop ok? As much as you can put will really help.
Good luck with her
Sorry to hear your girl is ill. If you haven't already done so, separate her from the rest of the flock so she doesn't get picked on or pass on anything contagious.
x2 on the emergency forum Yorkshire coop gave you a link to.
She is eating and drinking water but looks painful to walk. I have tried antibiotics, vinger, hot baths and steam. Not egg bound I did an exam on that. Her crop is not extended but she has lost some weight very bony now. Her comb is pale but it has been.
Hi and welcome to BYC - you have some great advice already so I'll just say hello!
All the best
How old is your hen? Have you felt her crop to see if it is full or empty, or if full is it hard or puffy? Is she having runny droppings? Is she eating and drinking? How cold is it where you live?
Alright great to have you joining the BYC flock
So sorry about your chicken and X4 on the Emergency's trend,
Try to see if you chicken will eat a hard boiled egg this is a very old trick my grandpa showed me back in the 1960's and he learned it when he was a child ..
I tried the hard boiled egg she ate some of it. She's not any worse but not any better either.
When was the last time you wormed your flock?
