She has not been laying eggs. She is around 4. When I put my hands around her face, she just rests it on my had. I don't know if she is pooping, but her vent is clear. We keep our feed in with them. I also noticed that her feathers were a lot lighter than the other hens. Her legs don't move at all.
We got back from our vacation and found her on the ground of the coop floor.
The poor dearHow do I get the fluid out?
I feel like she isn't going to last another day
I am going to take her to the vet tomorrow. It looked like she was twitching earlier. But thank you.Can she move her legs at all? You may want to get her up into a chicken sling to keep her cleaner and make it easier for her to eat and drink. Here is a video:
Compare her lower belly with the other hens to see if it is enlarged. Look for any lice or mites, and irritation from lying down so long. Do you see any evidence of injuries? I offer a scoop or small cup up to the hen’s beak to get them drinking and eating. Wet chicken feed with lots of water, scrambled bits of egg, a canned cat food can be offered in small amounts to get them eating and drinking.
You made it sound like you already had an appointment. None of us are local to you. Therefore we don't know what type of vets you have in your area. Make sure your location is on, and Google "avian vets near me" or "exotic vets near me". Make a few phone calls right now. Time crucial.She made it another night! Does anybody know any vet that will look at a chicken?
