Hello! I am a new chicken owner, and also new to posting a question to a forum online! We have only had our chickens for 3 weeks. We have 7 Golden Buffs that are 10 months old and 3 Ameracaunas that are about 5 months old. I found one of the Golden Buffs yesterday morning huddled on the floor shaking and lethargic, she kept closing her eyes and obviously was not acting like herself. I took her out of the coop and put her in a special crate we made to separate her and observe her. Later in the afternoon after checking on her, I noticed something very strange in her crate. It was about 6-8 in. long, about as big around as a pencil, was not bloody on the outside, but had some blood on the inside. It looked like and umblical cord (that's the only way I can decribe it) but the really strange thing was this "thing" also had sections to it like little sacs or sausage links attached in sausage casing. I know, sounds weird right? It also smelled really bad, like rotten, stinky fish!!! We gave her water to make sure she was getting liquids. Today, she seemed the same, maybe opening her eyes more, but not laying, also her poop seemed to be more of this yellow, stinky, fishy smelling liquid and she not going often at all. Her crop seems full, but soft and squishy. We are very new at this and welcome any suggestions and advice on what might be wrong and how to help her. Thanks!!!
