Fellow chicken parents, I've been visiting BYC for the last year but this is my first post. Thanks to many of you for sharing your stories & priceless knowledge, it has helped me immensely in this journey. One of my girls, a 10 month old Buff Orphington, is definitely not well. I have searched, Googled, called vets, and read 100's of forums to no avail. She was broody about 3 weeks ago, and I'm pretty certain has not laid since. We do not have rooster so she could not hatch. I kept her out of the coop and locked her in the run, not allowing her to climb into the nest boxes at night to break the broodiness. Shortly after she was back to her normal self I noticed a decent amount of blood in 2 of the nest boxes. I check every bum but all was well and the girls all seemed fine. That said, there was not a blood covered egg either. It was within the last 2 weeks Buffy started acting unwell. Here are her symptoms: puffed-up feathers, tired, not eating or drinking well, not laying, difficulty getting up on perch bars, comb is pale, purplish & folded over (her's has always been semi-flopped over & pale w/ a purple tint), noticed what looked like egg material in her poo today. I have examined her over and over again since noticing her change in behavior, originally thinking she was egg bound. There is nothing that I nor my husband have been able to feel. She does not have a messy bum or swollen tummy either which could indicate peritonitis which is what her other symptoms point towards. She still tries to get away when I attempt to pick her up to have a look but each day she seems a little weaker. My 9 other girls seem fine except for a broody Australorp for the third time in 3 months. I have still yet to identify who the blood came from, I thought possibly she had a rupture somewhere in her reproductive system as this has played out. My girls are all free range, fed organic fermented feed, water with garlic, access to a covered run and their coop is heated and insulated. They have never been given any kind of medication or vaccine, not that I am against that, I am simply trying to provide as much info as possible. I am attaching 2 pictures of her with Runty. I am grateful for any advise or thoughts on what she may be going through and what I should do to treat her. Thanks for the help.
