    hi, i have one of my chickens has been lethargic for 2/3 days , and seemed so weak this morning it wouldn't come out of the coop.
    I have taken it out of the coop and put it in a box with its own straw.
    later it has stood up and started eating but looks very weak.

    any ideas ??

    Might want to ask this question in the emergencies section.

    Agreed: post in the Emergencies section, although first guesses are parasites (mites, lice, worms) or coccidiosis.
