    I have 3 hens and just noticed one in the yard on its side with her eyes closed.
    She is still breathing.
    She takes a deep breath every 15 seconds. She has gooey saliva. She’s only about 1 year old. She tries to flap around every 2 minutes. Her neck is very floppy and seems paralysed. Any suggestions??

    Nothing you can do at that stage unfortunately.

    I've had chickens just drop dead. It happens fairly frequently as far as how chickens die. Sorry.
