Hi everyone. I've held off for 4 days on posting a call for help but I'm really at a loss and getting worried. 4 days ago my hen began staying off by herself and napping a lot. She has also stopped laying completely. She'll roam around with the other 6 for a few minutes and then just stop close her eyes and go to sleep standing right there. She's barely eating. I've been giving her Pedialyte. Yesterday she ate 2 worms in the yard but it takes her a little while since she picks at it so most of the time the others come finish what she's trying to eat. Today I got her to eat some water soaked bread. I also got a bit of yogurt in her along with the pedialyte via an eyedropper. She won't eat the layer crumbles even when I put cooked oatmeal in it and make it soupy. She did also nibble a tiny bit of broccoli today. But for the most part she doesn't even come over when I bring out treats. Her eyes look clear. She's not yet losing any weight that I can see, I can't feel bones - still a meaty breast. I looked into her beak today - everything looked fine. No injury, fungus, or gape worm (although I had ruled this out since she's not trying to get anything out of her throat at all). She just does nothing. No coughing, wheezing, sneezing. Her poop looked ok although I am waiting for my microscope to arrive tomorrow to further analyze it. Vent area is fine although she has had some poops stuck to her feathers a little bit - not much. I tried to feel for an egg stuck inside but being new at this and not sure how to root around I only went in about an inch to feel for it. Is this not far enough? Her abdomen doesn't feel hard. The more I read the more frustrated I get because I just can't pin this down. I now have a notebook completely filled with everything I have read and printed out. I haven't seen enough yet to know what's going on. Does anyone have any idea? Thanks so much for your help. Jill 3/26/07 I brought Suzie in today . She now won't eat on her own at all. I'm doing warm compresses and have her on a heating pad. I also finally found a vet about an hour away that will see us in the morning.
