I'm hoping to get some advice/help on what is ailing my hen. She's an Austrolorpe about 5 years old. She's been healthy (other than being saved from a hawk attack about a year ago, which she recovered in a day). We've had really hot weather here lately, lots of hot weather and although its not been that hot today, I'm wondering if she's just had enough and that she's having a heat stroke... I just don't know. I just found her like this: The roosters were trying to mate with her- she was trying to come up the hill and one rooster came running and mated, then another. Both times I saw that she did not get up suddenly, like most hens do. She was 'out of sorts'. I could tell there was something wrong. After noticing she was panting heavily, I took her inside. She's been inside with air conditioning- about 70 degrees F for two hours now. She seems better, but still will pant from time to time. She seems to not be able to pick herself up. I've felt around all of her body to see if there was an injury anywhere and I could not find any blood nor did she ever react in a way you'd expect an animal that's wounded to react if touched in a sore spot. Her crop seems, well, watery- I can feel grain in there, but its more like a large water balloon. I smelled her breath, it smells normal, like fresh cut grass if anything. Her wings are droopy. I've not noticed anything wrong with her this morning or last night. I've somewhat narrowed the possibilities to either... Heat stroke Poisoning Injury from hit by a car or hawk or maybe rooster or maybe something I have no idea about I have tried to give her water, but she does not drink. I have put apple cider vinegar in it and put her beak in it a few times anyway. She seemed to drink little. The other thing I've noticed is that she has not pooped, AT ALL.. these last two hours. That has to be a clue. Her comb seems normal color. She is somewhat hot to the touch on her skin... especially her feet and facial skin. Its not terribly burning up, just a bit warmer than I'd think a chicken sitting in 70 degree F air conditioned room for two hours would feel like. I figure her skin temp should feel just like mine if we've been in the same environment for the past two hours. Does anyone have any idea what I could do for her? She seems very weak. She's got her eyes open and alert, but just seems to not be able to stand. Does heat stroke make them weak like this... and not poop? I've checked the rest of my flock. No one else is exhibiting these signs. I'm somewhat wondering if she was hit by a car? She was walking up the hill that leads down to the road when I noticed her odd behavior. There is a spring next to the road that the chickens like to drink from. I plan on keeping her inside the cool house for the night, maybe a few days if she's still alive. The not pooping is what has me concerned that its something I have no idea about. I'm not sure she lays eggs anymore. And her comb is not dark, its an absolute normal color. She seems to be doing a bit better right now, resting comfortably, but still can't get up and pants from time to time. Recap: She just seems to be really weak and wobbly. She doesn't seem to be able to stand up. She is panting from time to time and will not eat/drink for me. This happened suddenly. This is why I think its heat stroke... how do you treat that? Sorry for being so choppy in describing everything. I hope its understandable. Can anyone recommend anything? Seen this before?
