I have a 10 week old heritage RIR pullet who is not doing so well. We moved them from the brooder to the outside coop 2 weeks ago. They are in the "baby section" away from the big birds. A few days ago we noticed our little Sue was trying very hard to swallow something and she couldn't get it down. We dislodged the obstuction and brought her back inside for observation. Since comming inside, I noticed that she was always laying down in the brooder. I thought maybe she was just week or stressed from the choking episode. Today I took a good close look at her and noticed that her feet are turning gray, her feet seem week and look "dead". The rest of her legs are yellow, it's just her feet that are looking gray. They smell bad, have a few small scabs and her toes feel cold. There is no swelling. I am not sure if some of the skin is necrotic or just scabbed. She also does not seem to have much movement, control or grip in her toes. (That's why I said her feet look dead.) I know pics would help alot, but I have not taken any as of yet. My main concern was to get Sue comfortable first. We have her resting on a hot water bottle. I have washed and cleaned up feet, and we are hand feeding her to make sure she is getting enough nutrion and water. Does anyone know know if this could be a circulation problem? If so, why? Or any other thoughts as to what the problem could be? I will try to post pics as soon as I can.
