I have a silkie pullet that is 14 weeks old. I noticed that she was a little lethargic a couple of days ago, but thought that it was due to the heat. When I opened their coop this morning, she didn't come out with the others. She didn't even move and I thought she was dead. When I picked her up, she moved, so I brought her in the house where it's cooler. I checked her all over and found the pasty mess. I cleaned her up, let her rest a couple of hours and finished the job. The first poop came out a few minutes after the initial cleaning. It was dark and REALLY smelly. It's been 8 hours and all that's come out since has been white and watery. She has been eating and drinking, not as much as I would like, though. I did put some electrolites in her water. I decided to give her bum a trim just so this wouldn't happen again. As I was trimming, I found what looked like a piece of grass sticking out of her. I pulled. And pulled. And pulled until it was 6 inches long and I felt resistance. So I stopped and cut it off about 2 inches away from her. I checked on her just now and the grass seems to be going back IN, not OUT! I don't know what to do. Is this grass the cause of all her problems? Why didn't she digest it? Do I pull on it every couple of hours or just leave it alone? Is there something I can give her to help it along? Please help. She's my Hubby's sweatheart.
