    Hi there.
    Just noticed my hen this evening was standing by herself looking rather lethargic. I checked her backside and saw that she has a cream colored, creamy consistency diarrhea. Her vent doesn't seem to be a problem. Her abdomen feels fluid filled. She is not one to normally let me handle her but tonight she isn't trying to get away. I moved her away from other hens and tried to give her yogurt, bread, water. She's refused all. I will give her water with a syringe but would appreciate any suggestions, asap, of course. She's a two yr old Americana. Thank you.
