    A few days ago i saw that one of my ameraucana was sunning instead of eating.....i didn't think much of it but a few days later found her away from the flock while they scratched, slumped with her head down. We separated her from the group and put her in a kennel with a heat lamp. My husband and I fed her mash and some electrolytes. ...sulmet in her water in the carrier. She lived through the night and we have repeated the process this morning. Her poop is gooey clear and bright yellow. Not sure what to do and we do not have access to a vet for poultry. ....love my Pearl and would hate to loose her :0 (

    Has she been laying recently? Sometimes they stop laying because they get egg bound- unless they are able to pass the egg successfully this can be a very serious problem. Please put "egg bound," in the searchbox and information should pop up.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I would definitely check her for egg binding. See my article in my signature here. And definitely post in our emergency for more help with her.

    I hope she makes a full recovery. [​IMG]

    No personal experience with egg binding, but looks like that's what this could be. You've already gotten good advice above and hope you get specific help in emergency forum.

    Just wanted to welcome you and wish your girl a recovery. She is beautiful.
