She may also have a slipped tendon, which can be corrected by using a splint.
Her bedding is hay, so its not slippery, I'm not sure if her feed is medicated or not.
How old is she? What is her feed called? It should say on the bag.
She is around about 2-3 weeks old and the people that sold us the chicken also gave us a bag of chick starter
I had one like that but it was only 3-5 days old. I gave them some agrilab vitamin and electrolytes in their water. ( it doesn't have iron) it took a few days but now my chick is 4 weeks and strong. I was told it could be a Vitamin B deficancy. I too use a chick starter that is medicated because I don't know what nest conditions were like before they were shipped to me.
Can you post a picture of her poop? FYI, chicks on medicated feed can get coccidiosis.
Good suggestion and probably worth trying.
Has anyone heard of a chicken's comb shrinking?
I know it can happen when they get dehydrated.
Quote:Yes. One of my girls was very dehydrated and her comb (which is smallish to begin with) completely shrunk down into a hard little row of nubs. Got her rehydrated and the comb eventually went back to normal.
