    2 yr old serama hen is lethargic and puffed up, comb is dark dark red almost looks bruised. Has been making high pitched squeal clucks for the last few days but doesnt move around the cage much she just sits in one corner with her eyes closed. She also feels really light but i watch her eat. Whats going on with her?

    I have no idea, but I wish her the best of luck. I am not very experienced, so I would not know. Sorry I can not be of help. It is always really awful to see a hen sick. Is there anyway you can get a vet to look at her?

    shes doing better now and vet is never an option because none of them will look at small birds or birds in general

    Where are you located? Has the weather changed recently? Have you felt extremities for pain?
