I have an Americauna that is about 18 months old. I don't know her weight, maybe about 6 lbs. Two days ago, she acted like she'd been suffering from the heat (it's been 105ish for months). I brought her inside the house and gave her electrolytes. She recovered overnight and was free ranging with the flock yesterday and appeared well. I've been continuing the electrolytes and have given bowls of ice to get near for cooling. This morning I found her laying in the hen house listless. It's not even hot yet. Probably in the high 70s now. I put her in the shade with more electrolytes and a bowl of ice. There is poo stuck to her butt feathers. Not right at the anus, but messy all over her rear feathers. No other birds seem to be affected. There are no signs of trauma and we have had no suspicious events. I have no idea if she has been eating, but I have seen her drink her water a little bit. I do know that yesterday she ate some greens in front of me when she was looking recovered. By the looks of her tail feathers, her poop may be runny, but I don't really know. I do not have a picture. I am trying to help her myself. We won't use a vet for our chickens. The bedding in the hen house and run are a mixture of pine shavings and grass. My hens get lots of free range time in the backyard. I clean their drinking water every day. They are fed organic feed from Coyote Creek Feed. Our ultimate plan is to dress our chickens for the table, but we want to save her if possible. Further, we haven't yet dressed a chicken, don't know how to do it, and are not comfortable determining if a chicken is okay to eat if we haven't killed it ourselves. I am going to go scour my books for clues, but I don't know where to begin. Any advice you can offer would be appreciated. Thank you.
