1) What type of bird , age and weight. SLW / Lt. Brahma pullet, about 6 months old, normal weight 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Slow, labored breathing with gaping beak. Tucking neck in, but occasionally gasps, shreiks and shakes head. Closing eyes, lethargic. 3) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. No 4) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. Nothing 5) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. layer mash, water, grass and bugs, occasional treats, free choice oyster shell and grit. 6) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Normal 7) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Last night I fed her 1/4 cup of mash with 1 tbs yogurt, 4 drops poly-vi-sol, and cod liver oil. She ate it all and drank ACV water. She didn't eat much this morning. Told DH to put electrolites in her water today but I don't know if she's drinking it 8 ) 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? I would prefer to treat myself. Vet is far away, inexperienced w/ chickens, and expensive. 9) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. 10) Describe the housing/bedding in use. Chicken tractor, pine shavings in coop area, free range all day. What can I do for my poor girl? Does this sound like gapeworm? I can't see anything in her throat. She sticks her neck out and yawns occasionally, but mostly has a hunched posture. There is no nasal discharge or wheezing. I should mention that she has not laid yet as far as I can tell. (I have been starting to get concerned about this!) Also, she only has the use of one wing... she was injured as a chick. (I can't imagine that this has anything to do with her illness though.) Thanks!
