    Please help me.....My nanny bird is not doing good.

    I thought she was hot so I brought her inside and put her in front of the ac vent. She breathing is not labored. She has some dried blood that looked like it came from her nose. I dont see any external injuries. Can anyone help my nanny bird.
    BTW...I hope I did the picture correctly.

    sorry about your chicken, how old is she? Is it possible she sustained internal injuries from an attack or high fall?

    She is 2 years old. I dont think she has had any fights or been attacked. Shes very loving and all the other girls get along with her. I dont have a rooster. I let them out the coop and she came out kind of weak looking then fell.

    Shes been inside by the ac vent for about 30 minutes and shes sleeping.

    Im so sorry your hen is poorly!
    One of my hens had a nose bleed from heavy sneezing. Have you seen any signs of respiratory problems?

    Poor girl! I'm sorry she's not feeling well.

    Was she like this on her way out of the coop, or after they were let out? Is that dried blood that dripped onto her wattle? Maybe she was pecked in the face.

    I would try to get some electrolytes in her. Maybe some yogurt as well.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    A concussion maybe? When people get a concussion sometimes blood comes out of their ear, I don't know about chicken anatomy but she might.

    I'm not sure about the blood from the nose, I had a swan die from drinking bleach water and I found him dead with blood from the nose and mouth. It could be from heat or injury... any other animals that might have kicked or hit into her? Listen to her lungs under her wing, any wheezing or rasping? If heat may be the cause, take cold water with some ice in a zip lock bag and place one under each wing, you don't want it freezing, just chilled. You want her temps to come down slowly. What is her temp? do you have a thermometer you could place in her vent to tell you? I also like to take a syringe and mix 1/2 water 1/2 poultry vitamin and drawl up in the syringe and inject just under the skin at the shoulders about 3 cc's to get some type of fluids in them. If they don't drink, putting liquid in their beak could aspirate them, so be careful.
