    I already tried warm bath and massage with olive oil but she is still very sleepy. I forced her to drink some water and yougurt and she rested since I found her in the coop on her side sleeping. What else can I do?

    G’Day from down under vika [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope the folks on the ER Forum are able to help you out and that your girl is OK.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
