    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]My 17 week old leghorn has become increasingly lathargic the past couple days. Her name is "Furiousa" and she's not living up to it as she had been. Drinking water, not really eating, is moderately interested in foraging and treats with the other girls, but has been sitting down most of the day, but alert-ish and would rather not move. Seems weak. She looks ok, shakes her head a little, no watery eyes or beak. Vent looks clear, a little dry. Watery poop. Hardly any discharge at all. I'm not sure what to do. Could be mites/lice, parasites, or coccidiosis or something. I'm not sure how to diagnose or treat.

    Everyone else is perky as usual.

    Also, I'm in Florida, it's super hot.

    She died... Causes unknown. Maybe sour crop ... [​IMG] tilted head back and yellowy liquid came out her face. The rest of the flock seems ok except one very panty hen.
