    Hello I am Nijah and my chicken nugget is very sick and I don't know what's wrong with her... This morning she layed a egg and she only lays white eggs She keeps laying down and one if her foot are not moving this happens constantly and we usually give her baby motrion... I also gave her some tums and put her in the bath for about 30 minutes this is the second time this happened[​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC - sorry that it is not under better circumstances that you join us. I would suggest posting on the forum "emergencies / diseases / injuries and cures" where hopefully someone will be able to help you out.

    All the best

    Sorry that your hen is ill. I am wondering what connection, if any, that has to her foot. 30 minutes sounds like a pretty long bath, I hope she wasn't chilled when the water cooled down.
