We are in Texas and about 3 days ago a cold front came and it began raining non-stop. It's been terrible outside so the chickens have mostly stayed in the coop even though the door has been open to go out. Last night when I went out to put them to bed, one of my silkies was just laying on the floor. I set her on a perch several times but she kept falling forward. I sat her on the ground to see what's going on and she wouldn't walk or stand, just fell forward. I was worried maybe she was just too cold and she felt damp so I brought her inside and put her in a kennel. She just layed in there all night. This morning she was on her side and looked dead but was still breathing so I picked her up and when I do lots of water/brown vomit came out of her mouth. I sat her upright and she stayed that way for a second, then flailed around but keeps just laying there almost unresopnsive. I don't know what could be wrong or what to do to help her?!?
