    I have 5 backyard layers. 1 of them has been lethargic for 4 days now. green poo. comb and beard are droopy. I will not put a lot of money into her at vet. they do have an antibiotic to add to water at farm supply store. should I buy that and quarantine her. I don't want her to suffer either. will this illness pass or will she? the other 4 birds are fine. I checked vent yesterday, there doesn't appear to be an obstruction.

    lack 0f appetite. I bought a different food and none of the birds seem to care for it but still pick at grass and bugs. I am grabbing a different kind today

    I am a Christian also. thanks for your help. I will just keep an eye on her. she gets in roost at night and moves about to sleep in different spots during day. she put up a fight when I try to catch her to check on her. but she is warm to the touch, like running a fever.

    take care and blessings to you
