    Chicken broke leg. Set leg. Given aspirin. 4 days, picking at food but not really eating. Getting thin. Has this poop. Not drinking much water, if any.
    3 years old, always a bottomless pit with food.
    Panting with fan on her. She's in a sling.

    I just don't know what to do. The lack of eating and this poo-what do I do? HELP

    I believe green poop is a sign that they are not eating enough. Maybe the asprin is giving her an unset stomach, esp. if she is taking it on an empty stomach, I know it would make me feel bad if I did that. Maybe a little ice in a baggie wrapped in a paper towel on that leg would help to make it feel better, not sure, but it would make my broken leg feel better. also I would give her some electrolyte solution in her water for some added strength since she is not eating, could be the pain, ice would help that. Keep an eye out for infection and keep her separated from the others until she heals. hope she does ok

    Definitely not eating, aspirin for the pain. I would stop the aspirin. I recommend you tube feed her. Make a slurry of scrambled egg, poultry nutri drench, mixed with her feed and add crushed vitamin B complex tablet and warm water. I recommend you contact 'chickenzoo' as to where and how to insert the tube. She did this with my JG roo back in November. Good luck.
