    Hi everybody I'm in need of some help, I have a poorly chicken (beloved pet) who is about 2.5years she has had bad dirrohera, very hunched over with bdnk end down. She looks cold - it's 5 degrees in in the UK...been like this for 5 days, been recently worked. I have 2 other chickens - do I bring her in or keep with the others, she pecks about a bit and then I open the gate she comes running!!

    If she looks like a penguin she might be egg bound. Bring her in and keep her warm. In the morning put her in a warm sink and check her vent. If the egg is stuck the warm water might loosen her muscles and let it past. Post some photos they may help people to see what's wrong
