I'd like some help figuring out what happened to my chicken. I had to leave town this weekend and left my 6 chickens in the care of my wife & son. Came back yesterday to discover my Silver Wyandotte lying on her side under the coop. When I go under there, she was obviously dying - could hardly lift her head and had labored breathing. The chicken was 20 weeks. This was my first experience with a sick girl (I got my first ones in June) so I called my brother-in-law. He said to massage her craw, which I did (I think). It did no good. She was so bad off I decided to put her down. I noticed in the coop that some of her feathers were strewn around. Also, my son told me that when he went to close the coop door at 9PM Friday, that it had blown shut and 2 of the chickens were trapped outside. My polish was fine and roosting on the composter. But my Wyandotte was on the ground behind the composter. He picked her up and put her in the run. She didn't resist his picking her up and didn't immediately enter the coop, which was unusual, but she was standing and looking normal. The chickens were not let out Saturday or Sunday until I got home, which is when I found her. When I pulled her out from under the coop, she had a matted area on her side. It could have been a wound that she sustained Friday night, or it could have just been where the dirt and pine straw had matted. My sense though is that she was sick. Any thoughts?
