    Hi,for the last couple of months my hen has been drinking so much that she pukes water[​IMG]
    I have researched the illness {Coccidioses} and am starting to get worried...
    she is a pet and i have had her for four years now,in the past(i travel alot!)(and bring my hens with me)[​IMG] while i was in the shop i came back to her not breathing properly and not standing up just all wobbly.
    also she was born late and mother had already left nest but i kept her warm then she grew up perfectly she has also been chased by preditors a long time ago
    but after all that she is the superhero hen,but usually she would heal fast .now she is eating normally has crumbly feet that she nibbles at .but the problem is she does not stop drinking and throws up alot but continues drinking until all of it is gone ...she is my lovely pet and i will do whatever it takes to stop her from getting hurt or sick

    Thanks please help my chicken!!
    -Sophie

    Do you have a vet you can take her to? Sounds like kidney involvement or diabetes ( if chickens can get it).
