    Help! Came home this afternoon and found my hen (barred rock) droopy and having a white and yellow discharge coming from her vent. I thought she might have an egg bound situation, she is
    lethargic and didn't have any food in her crop so apparently she hasn't been eating either. I brought her in and gave her a warm sitz bath and cleaned her up, right now she is in a cat carrier
    and I am wondering if what might be the problem and if there is anything I can do. When I cleaned her up I couldn't feel anything around her vent. Any help would be appreciated...thanks!!!

    could be coccidiosis, if you have other chickens they will all have to be treated. sulfadiethozine or corid are a couple meds that can be used.Get a fecal test done by a vet to make sure
