1) What type of bird , age and weight (does the chicken seem or feel lighter or thinner than the others.)? Silver wyandotte, she is much lighter, I think she will die soon, originially a RIR had the same symptoms and died, maybe 1 month ago? The wyandotte is about 5 months 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Lethargic, pecks but doesn't really eat, puffed up a bit and tail down somewhat, poop on butt (only the "pee" coming out), skinny as hell, sounds like her breathing is messed up, which is why is suspect resp. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? 3-4 days now 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? No, but this is my second one that has done the same thing, the other one was 1 month+ ago 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. NO 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. No idea 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Organic layer, fruits and veggies, access to yard during the day (bugs and greens), organic scratch, some water with molasses (to make sure it wasn't constipation) 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. It's just the "pee" at this point. White. 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? I tried molasses to see if it was constipationg but it obviously wasn't. No treatment. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? Myself, and natural stuff. I will probably kill her but I want to prevent it in the others, this is the most important thing to me! 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. I don't have a picture but if someone needs one I can take it. I think people know what a lethargic skinny chicken looks like, though 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use A coop that has some solid walls but lots of chicken wire for ventilation (almost a run, I live in a warm area) and use grass clippings/weeds as bedding I really want to know how contagious whatever this is is (I though it wasn't at all since this one took so long from the last I figured I was ok) and how I can prevent future deaths. I also am getting chicks in May and need to know whether I can safely integrate them (if ever). Any ideas are appreciated. Let me know if you have further questions. They have no vacc. and have been fed only organically, no meds.
