    i have a serama hen thats a little over a year old.i noticed she wasnt moving around that much and she looked swollen.(i think.seramas have very large breasts that stick out) so im not sure.i felt her crop thinking it was impacted,didnt feel anything.i brought her in and she just ate a little food.i put vitamins and electrolytes in her water.i did give her a few drop of oil in her mouth just in case.ive seen the roo with her and she fights him alot so im wondering if maybe he hurt her.should i try polyvisol?if so 5 drops 2x a day for 5 days then 5 drops once a day?also should i also give her vitamin e and how much?she seems pretty alert and gets around.
    thanks for any advice..

    I'm not an expert in this area, sorry. I was hoping that some of these questions might help you get an answer from someone though. I would be reluctant to begin treating her until the problem is identified though. Certainly vitamins couldn't hurt. Good luck with her.
