So this evening at about 8 something I noticed that my hen had a drooping tail and wasn't moving much. Her eyelids sometimes remained semi-closed and her comb was a bit pale. I haven't checked her vent to see if it could be egg binding. I doubt it is since she laid an egg at around 11 to midday although she stepped on it I believe, thing is its broken and the yolk and white has leaked away. I'm not sure what I should do but I am not considering bringing her to a vet since she isn't a pet. She is an asset to me. I don't mean to be cold-hearted and I love animals but I am in no position to shell out vet funds for her. I am perfectly fine with putting her down to eat as well. Please, no backslash. I would love it if she made it through fine but I honestly can't justify paying vet fees for one chicken that might die anyways. I mean I rear them for meat they are not pets to me.
