Ok step 1 1) What type of bird , age and weight. Australorp. 9 months. 4ish lbs? 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Usually aloof hate people kinda bird. Today shes been laying around, happy to be coddeld, not eating, runny egg in first stool. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? This morning around 10am 4) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. None 5) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. None 6) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Same as my other 7. pellets in mornng, corn for brunch then off to the yard were they can free range. 7) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. first was runny with obvious egg in it. Not solid egg but just cracked. Second stool was perfectly normal. 8) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Came here and read about warm water bath. Set up warm water tub for her and massaged her belly and fluff for half an hour. She loved it but still doesn't peck, move around eat or drink. 9 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? I would like t treat completely myself. 10) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. No outward visable signs of damage. 11) Describe the housing/bedding in use Outside coop is off ground with dry leaves for bedding nice and deep. currently have her in warm bathroom where she is roosting on shower bar and staring at the wall. I've read a bunch of the links here on egg periodontist but she didn't pass any hard clumps then her second stool was perfect, no egg or shell. soft round semi firm white and black marble perfect. (God I must be going crazy to admire a chicken poop so much). I gave her a warm belly bath and she normally hates water with the burning passion of a thousand suns. She quitely stood in the water and soaked for an hour. She usually hates me and does not tolerate being handled but I massaged her for over 20 minutes and her head dropped like she was sleep threw most of it while she was in the warm water bath. I'm certified for massage for people but have only heard about it for animals but she seemed to adore it. I wrapped her up after she started panting a bit and held her while she dried and drank some cool water. Then she pooped clean. Her crop feels empty, neck is thin and I haven't felt any peristalsis in the region. She rejected food and hasn't touched any water since then. She isn't moving much or sleeping but not acting weak. Just perched like a statue. There is no swelling and her temperature after getting dry feels normal and consistent over her body. So I don't think there is any internal inflammation. Could an egg just have broke inside of her without as a fluke? She I go with antibiotics just in case or avoid it until there is signs of inflammation? How long should I wait until I know she isn't eating and force feed her? Am I overreacting? This is my first year with chickens and raised them all from lil chickies by my feet in their box in my home office. She's been an exceptional layer and between my 8 birds am still getting 6 daily without a light. I live in the city and sometimes kids pass through the alley and give them treats but never had a problem, mostly too cold now though and they are back in school. I can't think of anything else to say, help please.
