    She is bloted, walking unsteadily and is hunched. She had a large blockage of poop that we cleaned off of her too. She all a round looks sick. I was wondering if anyone had any treatments for this or suggestions of any kind.

    Thank You!

    How old is she? When did she last lay an egg? Is she eating and drinking normally? Walking unsteadily and hunching up are kind of the uniform chicken sign of "I'm sick" and do not point to one condition specifically.

    she is three years old, she wasn't eating very well, but has picked up in the past day or so. I am not positive when she last laid an egg, but it has not been since she has had these symptoms.

    I know it seems like the common answer around here but I'd start with the treatment for a stuck egg and see if you find a solution to her problem there. If not, at least you can cross that off the list!
