    Help@ I have a Red Star sexlink , not sure on age, Just picked up on 23rd of September about 5 lbs if that. Is just laying around not interacting with other chickens for about 2 days. The comb is purple on the end and slightly flopped over. I have seperated her from the other chickens. Please any help would be greatly appreciated?

    Not enough info is being provided. Please answer the questions in the sticky posted at the top of this section. I copied it for you so you don't have to search.

    Give us the following information. The more you tell us, the better we will be able to help you.

    1) What type of bird , age and weight.
    2) What is the behavior, exactly.
    3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms?
    4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms?
    5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma.
    6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation.
    7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all.
    8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc.
    9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far?
    10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet?
    11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help.
    12) Describe the housing/bedding in use

    And [​IMG] I wish it was under better circumstances.
