    hi everyone.

    i have a mixed breed hen that is about 2 yrs old.

    recently ive noticed that she walks funny, as if unstable, sometimes falling on its wings for support. moreover, she can no longer jump from the floor to the perching branch, having to climb the ladder ackwardly instead and sometimes falling from it.

    she is very thin, and somewhat lethargic, but still very vocal.

    my first guess was worms, so i isolated her and started treatment.
    one day into the treatment, she passed soft droppings, her crop is mostly soft with liquid, and she doesnt seem to want to eat.

    the rest of my pack are very active and flighty, going through molt but feeling good.

    any suggestions?
