Hi everyone, I could do with a little advice Below is a pic of the bum of a Sussex hybrid I have. For a few weeks now she has been runny and making a mess of herself. She seems to be eating ok and drinking. I have seperated her because she has been sitting a lit and looks like walking is hard work for her at times - maybe a little fed up and weak looking and sounding. Tonight I gave her a good trim Here is her bum a bit cleaner and visible So, this is the first time i have had a good look at her in this way and i am not really sure what to look for. She did not seem red and inflamed and there was nothing stuck in there as far as i could see. And as she has been laying I don't think there is an egg issue. I took the opportunity to have a feel of her abdomen ad her crop, looked at her feet etc. I also then looked at two other hens to have a little comparison. Her crop was the softest - full but quite liquid compared with the other two - though not a massive difference All of their abdomen felt as firm as each other. She did not make any uncomfortable noises while I was having a good feel - and she was awake during this time. She had a feed too on a few sunflower seeds as a treat and then ate some layers once I put her back in her area. So - I found no evidence of anything really, so I will just monitor her I think, Maybe get some cider vinegar to put in her water and a bit more yogurt! If there is anything else I should have looked for please let me know and I will be Vet tomorrow night too!!
