    She has chronic diarrhea
    Won't eat the chicken feed (only eating people food, grass, bugs)
    She will scratch around but sometimes just stands around looking ruffled & cold


    It's been going on 1-2 weeks now
    and now when she poops she makes a little crying noise


    The poop sometimes has sticky yellow stuff ...it gets stuck to her feathers & so I just gave her a bath

    Please what is the deal with her & what should I do? Product recommendations?

    Inspect her for lice/mites. Worm her and the others if you havnt already done so.

    What wormer do I use? I have never wormed although I have seen tapeworm segments in their poo. But lately I don't see any segments. Kinda weird. :\

    I started giving them verm x pellets recently, but the sick one won't eat them. I also put garlic in the water if that counts...
