For the last three days or so, I've noticed Clarissa, our 2 1/2 year old Golden Sexlink acting very lethargic and has by and large separated herself from the flock. The first two days she spent in a corner of the scratch yard, hunkered down and puffed up. It wasn't cold out, though it was a bit breezy. This morning I noticed that she didn't jump right in and eat when I tossed out the morning ration of scratch mix. Later today, I found her huddled down in the "Toy Shed" which is an open air kind of lean-to type structure where we store all manner of equipment and materials. The girls usually like to hang out in this structure when the temperatures start to soar. But, as I said, it has not been all that warm. Certainly no where near the upper 90's we were having a few weeks ago. I picked her up and cuddled her for a few minutes and noticed right away that she didn't have her normal attitude that she displays when I pick her up....which is, OK, cuddle me quick then put me down please...She just went kind of limp and struck me as being rather weak. Shortly after I put her back down, she defecated. That's when I noticed that her poo didn't look right at all. It's a light green in color and very runny. Almost to the point of being diarrhea, though not quite. So, any suggestions of what might be wrong would be greatly appreciated. I too am one of those who cannot afford a veterinarian, even if there were one in the area that treated chickens. (ever notice there seems to be a serious lack of vets qualified to treat chickens in this world? ) I have NO clue what her problem might be. She got very lethargic about two months ago, but I attributed that to the heat at the time, since once it cooled down she went right back to being her usual bossy self. Help! Any ideas?
