    Wouldn't do that it could drop her temp!! Dust bath wouldn't hurt... O and when one of mine got sick she also ended up with mites! So check her neck too! Once I got rid of them everything got better!

    I agree. Don't do anything that will stress her. But DO keep her away from everyone else until you figure this out. May save your flock. I also agree with what Brownie said about the mites. Check her good. I lost a bird to mites this year. Check her neck and vent. Do you have some sav-a-chick you can give her? Scrambled eggs? Yogurt?

    Awww! I hope she gets better soon for you.

    Ray!! I've got a bator running now…are you trying to get me thrown out?! Nice looking whites by the way! I looked at their BCMs and it seems as if they have a Wyandotte Roo in there too.

    And what is it with those English and their Roundy Chickens?? Their Orpingtons are rather rotund as well.

    Yes. And if you have gatorade on hand, you can put a little in her water (an Organic Egg Farm near me uses only Gatorade for meds, well that, and an ax).

    Oops! Just saw your last post. I would say NO to the bath unless you suppose she is egg bound or she has some injury you need to clean out. Otherwise you will be getting her cold and wet ~2 things you want to avoid.
