    Hi, my one of my pullets is not eating, or i have not see her eat. She seen depressed. She drinks for sure. But she is very sluggish, and always lieing down and when she is awake and up she barley walk and when she does she is very trippy. Kinda like she drunk or something. She holds her wings out to the side a little to walk better. She refuses to leave the coop! So what wrong with her and what can i do to help her?

    Does she sit around all fluffed up and seperate herself from the other birds?

    How long has she been acting like this?

    Have you had any other sick birds?

    What color is her comb and waddles?

    You should bring her inside and check her all over for any injuries, and any bugs. Keep her warm and as quiet as possible.

    The first thing I would do while we try to figure out what is wrong with her is try to get some food and vitamins in her. If she is not eating her chicken feed try some plain yoguart or some scrambled eggs. If she still won't eat, try some wet cat food.

    If you don't have any electrolytes that you can add to her water, us can use poweraid or gatoraide. Don't use red or pink.

    It you don't have any of the above, try a little sugar in the water.

    need to get her some energy so that she will want to eat.

    I am at work and on my break, so I can't stay on the webpage, so please email me if no one else has any suggestions and I will keep in touch through email.
