    Thank u ,when i check on her ,she has her little head laying down,eyes shut,she then raises her head upon my voice.It is sad the vets around me r so expensive,the last em.visit cost me 95.00 just to walk into the room,then all they did was xray yes an egg is stuck,i with the help of this forum saved her,reading all the past posts and everything i could find on the net.Thank u for your prayers,i feel that is all i have left.

    this heat is making it hard for them too. try to give her some electrolyte solution in her water if can get her to drink. People use ACV, natural kind, in their water for CRD also. hope she gets better

    My chicken did the exact same but she never came up again so she's obviously stronger. What i did was massage her crop as i was told they can get food stuck in their crop and it get inected causing them to die. Massage her crop would be the only thing to suggest. she is very young so should pull through but she sounds in a bad way. If it has already been infected trying feeding her yoghurt through a syringe..
    Hope she pulls through and this helps..
