I hope someone can help!!! One of my girls was absolutely fine this morning and this afternoon when they were let out to free-range. I got home from work and the girls came running to greet me as usual... except for one. She was off by herself... just sitting there! I carried her back into the yard near the coop and put her down. She looked listless and dazed, she stood around for awhile, walked around a little and then sat back down and closed her eyes. She has a little poo around her vent and I noticed now that she is inside that she is holding her butt up in the air in a strange way. She dropped a weird, wet poo on me. 1) What type of bird , age and weight. Red sex link, 23 weeks, normal weight 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Listlessness, diarrhea (have to observe more poos), holding rump up. 3) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. No 4) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. Nothing 5) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Organic layer pellets, free choice grit and oyster shell. Water 6) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. The one I have observed so far was formless and mucus-y... almost like snot with urates on it. All the poos in the tractor looked normal... everyone's "overnight deposits" from last night were normal. 7) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? I put electrolites in her water and saw her drink several times. I made a wet mash with layer pellets, starter mash, yogurt, 5 drops poly-vi-sol. She ate almost all of it. 8 ) 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? Treat myself, might consider vet as a last resort. The only vet is far away and not very experienced with chickens. 9) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. 10) Describe the housing/bedding in use They live in an a-frame tractor with the coop on top. It is moved every day and they usually free range for a couple of hours in the pm. Bedding is hay. I also thought I should mention that she and her sisters started laying about two weeks ago... I don't know who lays what eggs, but today I got four eggs and there are four of them!
