    one of the chickens laid a blob and was relatively normal earlier but this evening she didnt even try to run away!
    She is sitting down with her tail down and eyes shut, her comb is still red but her eyelids and under is pale
    we have two white chickens and we don't know who poos what and who lays what,
    her crop felt normal I will check to see if its emptied tomorrow
    She doesn't smell bad
    She is two years old.
    we have been giving her layers pellets and accidentally gave her flubenvet for extra days
    she has dried poo on around her bum area and apart from that it is clear, we looked for egg bound egg and she is internally smooth, a few months ago we lost a chicken to sour crop
    no strange white discharge outside of the vent
    she was panting with her mouth open and her nostrils and eyes are clear. her upper palate is clear as well
    blood returns to the comb if you pinch it
    she hasn't lost any body weight and nothing feels more prominent.
    replies needed urgently
    Thank you[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I can't find it again, i think some animal ate it in the night
    Both my birds aren't eating this morning
    The sick one is drinking but i don't think her crop emptied normally
    The other's crop emptied normally
