    Hi everyone, I need help with my chicken. She is very lethargic like no energy at all. She wants to eat and drink but no energy to eat or drink. She is a year old. I'm not sure what breed she is maybe a golden lace Wyandotte. I bought her from rural king and they said she was a buckeye but she dont look like a buckeye. Anyway, she hasn't laid an egg in about 4 days maybe longer. Her poop was runny at first but now is white, green and solid. She can't move she can barely stand and her head is always down. I've checked her crop and it was hard but has since came down with help. Her belly seems swollen but she is so skinny I can't tell if her belly is supposed to be like that. Her comb looks pink like its supposed to. No runny nose. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    If she has a twisted neck, I think she may be suffering from Wrey neck(vitamin E deficiency)
    I guess due to this she cant eat or drink properly.
     
  3. Maybe we could get a picture of her if possible. Vitamin deficiencies seem to be a common thing with chickens.
