In the Brooder
- Mar 21, 2009
My year an half old Chochin hen has lost weight, she (Lucy), seems very listless the egg that she laid yesterday was only a yolk in a thin membrain now she has spent all day in the coop like she is sick. The milky white of the egg she dropped but it's not an egg and she acts like she's sick. How can I help her. She has food and water but she won't move around much. The other two hens are fine they are in the yard acting normal. Does anyone else out there have a sick chicken and what did you do? I don't want to rush her to the vet (husband thinks I'm over reacting by doing that)(she's a pet) she does have diahrrea - someone please offer some advice. thank you!!
