I have a hen - she is a "wild" chicken who befriended us - best guess about 1 year old. She runs free on a plant nursery - eats plants, bugs, geckos, etc, and we give her some bread, fruit, corn, as treats. Wednesday she was limping on one leg - gingerly stepping on it. Couldn't grab her to see what was wrong. But otherwise she seemed normal. Then Thursday she didn't show up the whole day - which was quite worrisome. Finally this morning I found her and she didn't really want to eat and seemed a little listless. She had a few kernels of corn at first, then didn't want anymore. She usually comes running when called but she just stood there. Didn't want to be caught but we caught her and put her into a rabbit hutch with food and water. She just basically stood or laid in there the rest of the day. Didn't eat. kept knocking over the water we gave her. Her tail is down, when she usually has it up. She isn't limping anymore, though. I don't know anything about chickens. Talked to one animal hospital who basically said to watch her to see if she eats tonight. If not then she should be seen by the vet. I don't see any external signs of a problem. She is pooping, but to be honest I don't really know what normal is. What I've seen of her poop ranges from big puffy brown to watery whitish- yellow. Depending on what she ate or if she had been sitting on some eggs all day. Like if she just had a blueberry, it's blue. If she's been sitting on eggs all night, really large puffy brown. now it's pretty runny - yellowish? I had to leave her for tonight and will check on her in the morning. She seemed ok in the cage but I'm still worried as she's never been locked up before. I'm worried about leaving her there overnight. The hutch has a plywood roof and chicken wire walls and a mesh wire floor. Wood frame. There are feral cats, neighbor's dog likes to come over sometimes, feral pigs, and mongoose and rats around. She and one of the stray cats don't seem to bother each other. They have walked within 2 feet of each other and nothing happens. She just squawks for a second. I think she'll be safe in there - but still worried. Normally she flies up into trees when there is danger. Any input?? Thank you so much.
