    My three and half year old hen is not eating and passing water poo. She is week and her leg scales are coming off. Though she passes loose water poo, she makes an uncomfortable sound, as if she is in pain.

    As a quick measure, I have added garlic, onions and little paracetamol in her water. She is drinking water.

    Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks

    Now I found that she is vomiting clear liquid sometimes, when she bend down to drink. Or is it gastric reflux? She is shaking on her foot. Her condition worsening now. Any help, please?

    First thing first, separate her from the other birds in case it can be passed on.

    I am not expert but what is her crop feel like? Is it really hot where you are at the moment?

    Thanks for your reply. Her crop was full in the morning itself. I failed to check it. I searched google and found that watery poo may be caused by not eating enough food. I think that she has impact/sour crop. She is drinking too much water. I will check her crop now and try to to empty it.

    I have already separated her from other chickens.

    Thanks

    OK, I was thinking it may be impacted crop, being full in the morning is a sign of that.

    Plenty of info on here about symptoms and how to fix it.

    Good luck.

    Best of luck. A breeder told me that if any of my chickens even got sour crop that I needed to use an antifungal
