    Our large Brahma (sp?) is acting odd, I found her yeaterday on the run outside hobbling around:( so I brought her in the garage & set up the chicken hospital. she has watery poo, like really runny, no sign of form at all. she is holding her one leg, its not broken or any sign of puncture etc. today she is putting more weight on it. still hobbling. I started Anitbiotics this morning. lots of straw, layena, and fresh water /anitbiotic... she layed a egg todat so its not that she bound or anything... she spanting BUT its also 101 degrees. I have a fan on her and shes in the concrete floor with a space for getting comfy in the straw. so do you think its the heat? OR do you think that since our 4th of july party she got into the cantalope rines and over ate ? giving her the poops???
    what do ya all think? I hope its nothing. shes a favorite here:)
