    Like the title reads I have a Cochin that I am not sure how old she is. The last few days she has been lethargic, falling over, drooling a little from her mouth and her belly is bare and she has some scabs on it. We brought her in tonight and put her in a warm dark place in hopes she lives. I have eleven other chickens in the pen with her and they all seem to be fine. Does anyone have any advice?

    Offer her crumbles with yogurt and pedialyte or water with electrolytes.

    Sorry to hear about your cochin. It doens't sound good. [​IMG]

    Update.
    She was decent this morning but when I got home she had passed. My little girls cried as we buried her tonight. We don't know what happened. The good news is we hatched out several babies the last two weeks.
