I'm new here and I need help desperately! If anyone can help, I'd be eternally grateful. My boyfriend found a chicken wandering around the neighborhood which is very near the Chevron refinery. We've had her a couple of months now and she seemed fine until maybe 2 or 3 days ago. That's when I noticed that she was really hot. She likes for me to pick her up and walk around with her. She lays her head on my arm and falls asleep. She squawks terribly when I put her back down. Actually, she throws a fit! She has a hard lump in her crop, too. She's had diarrhea off and on the last few days as well., I thought she might be depressed being the only chicken in an all cat neighborhood but I'm already pushing it with my landlord. However unexpectedly Chic-Chic came into my life, I just couldn't bear losing her! Please help me be a good chicken-mom and help me figure out what's wrong with her.
