One of my Speckled Sussex (Poppy) pullet's comb is getting paler. Our other 4 girls have bright red combs and are laying regularly. We have never seen Poppy in the nest but we occasionally find a slightly darker colored egg that is a bit smaller than the other girls so we suspect it's hers. She doesn't walk oddly either (I thought maybe internal laying). Our other SS lays 5-6 eggs a week. She is not lethargic and walks around and will peck at a BOSS or whatever I have tossed for them and has a full crop every day, but doesn't scratch the ground looking for goodies any where near the amount the others do. I also noticed the first 2 days she mumbled a lot when walking around. I sniffed her beak when I gently pushed her crop and smelled no odor (to check for sour crop). Any ideas?? 1) What type of bird , age and weight. SPECKLED SUSSEX, 10 MONTHS OLD, PULLET, Don't know weight but she's a good sized girl. 2) What is the behavior, exactly. I explained above 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? 4-5 days--comb slowly went paler. 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? NO. 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. NO 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. None Known 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Organic soy free layer mash (90% of diet) the other 10 % = Organic greens and some BOSS, rolled oats, organic cracked corn twice a week they get organic yogurt 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Not sure--someone had a greener, grainier dropping but it looks more like it's from digesting a lot of plant material. She does go crazy over eating the greens every day. 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? None yet as I do not know what to treat. I do add 1 1/2 teaspoon ACV/gallon to their water. I was thinking of adding vitamins to their water instead for a few days. 10 ) 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 was going to bring in a fresh flock fecal to the avian vet and treat if necessary. I'd like to treat myself but if the vet thinks she needs to see her I will bring her in. 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. No 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use. Pine shavings in the hen house and sand in the covered run. They also have an additional run with pea gravel they can go in too when we are home. Its too wet here in the PNW to let in the grass yet.
