    Okay. I am no chicken expert so i will tell you all I can. our chicken was acting very slow, and did not bob its head when she walks like a chicken should. i looked into her mouth and there was mucus everywhere, and she is sleeping ALOT! and i think she is sick. [​IMG] PLEASE HELP!!!!!! It is my sisters chicken and she is very sad.

    put 3 tsp of ACV in 1 gallon of drinking water for her. It will not fix anything. It willl only help to clear out some of the mucus. It will help in many areas as you will likely need to do many things if you plan on helping the bird. Check the crop. You probably need to administer antibiotics. I am not the person to suggest anything about antibiotics.Than you need to find out why the bird is ill and fix that issue.

    Thank you! She is about 2 months old so does that change anything?

    age is relevant in the context it is difficult to have such a young bird ill. It rules out a few things.

    If her crop is sour or hard don't give her ACV yet. You will need to do other things. Just examine the bird and give me more information.

    sleeping a little but still does not seem interested with the food. she pooped VERY little. she is not chirping as usual. nothing really wrong with her crop, it is empty. and her skin and butt is yellow. lots of mucus oozing out of her mouth. does that help?
