    Greetings, PierreHollander, and [​IMG]! Pleased you joined our flock! Beat me on what might be affecting your chicken. You might post the pic in the link below. Be specific as possible as everything you think might be pertinent - diet, age of bird, other symptoms, etc. Good luck - hope the Emergencies folk give you some helpful advice: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

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

    Best wishes to you and your gal, I do hope that the folks on the ER Forum were able to assist and also that she makes a full recovery.

    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. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Is it possible to get your chicken to a vet? I'm wondering if it got bitten or stung by something and is having an allergic reaction.
