I have a Rhode Island Red that is my baby. I'm not sure how old she is. We have had her for 4 yrs but the people we rescued her from did not know her age either. Saturday, we found her outside and not in the roost at night. She was extremely weak and could hardly stand. When I try to stand her up her feet are curled and she lays back down. When she does stand, she can only for about a min. Has not walked today. Her comb is shriveled. Sleeps all the time and can hardly stand now. I thought dehydration. Been hand feeding her small amounts of food and she is drinking a few times a day. I want to know if she is dying. I don't want her to suffer. She is alert in between naps. What should I do?
