1) What type of bird , age and weight: She's (Elvira) a Easter egg-er, I think, she lays blue eggs; when she lays. She's older, maybe 3-4 years. Not sure about the weight but she's "stocky". We've had her for 5 months. (we acquired all 5 girls five months ago) 2) What is the behavior, exactly: She's not interacting with the other hens (she's the head of the crew), hangs back by herself, not eager to free range (which is very strange for her), lethargic, dragging her feet, and upon placing her back in the run she lost her balance. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms?: 2 days (that I know of, for sure) 4) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma: No 5) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation: My first thought- DH fertilized the yard a few weeks back. We didn't let the girls out because of that. Maybe she found a little pellet when they finally were let out? It's unlikely but not unthinkable. 2nd thought- She hasn't laid a propper egg since we got her. She's laid eggs with no shell or just a soft shell. I've posted about her lack of eggs here before, can't find the thread though. 6) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all: She wasn't eager to eat or drink today. I let all five out to free range while I cleaned the coop/run. Elvira just parked it by the fence and didn't move/scratch. I had to pick her up and place her back in the run. (I didn't want to shoo her in, poor girl) 7) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? - watery as far as I can tell. 8) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Nothing but a little extra love. 9 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? - We won't spend any serious $$ on her. She was free, she's older, and hasn't laid a proper egg. 11) Describe the housing/bedding in use: coop is 17 sq foot, run is 100 sq foot. I use pine shavings in the coop and part of the run. Water is abundant as well as Purina layer crumble and oyster shells. here is a picture of how she acted while the other girls eagerly scratched their way around the yard... she stayed there for 30 min. She has no goop in her eyes or bad breath, though I could hear her breath every so often. I hope some one can help!
