    Since yesterday afternoon, one of my three hens has been very unwell. She has yellowish runny poop around her bottom, mostly keeps her eyes closed and seems weak. I've had her inside the house, comfortable in a nest of towels, she has managed to take some water, not eating at all. I've had the hens for about three months and they are approximately 3 years old. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to take her to the vet, I'm so worried for her. Please any advice would really be appreciated. Thanks
