I have a 2 mo pullet that I have separated from the others for a couple of days as she was looking very weak, and she is not eating of drinking. She was pooping on herself, so i cleaned her off, but i noticed she has a couple of sores on her underside. When I turn her over, it looks like the bone in the middle of a chicken sticks out more than it should and has a sore there, and there's a spot on the lower part of her neck that is also sore. I'm wondering if that bone is broken or something. I can tell her underside is very tender, and she's so skinny that all i can see is her frame. The entire underside is featherless. I will try to take a picture of her tomorrow if if she's still alive, and I'm also thinking about taking her to the avian vet here. I couldn't do it today because it was Memorial Day of course (why does death always knock on a holiday or weekend) I don't know the specific breed she is, but we got all our chicks from Atwoods. Her poo looks normal, about the color of her feed. Her breathing is very laboured and has been since I noticed her the other day. No other birds are exhibiting the same symptoms, however I have found a couple of golden laced polish crested pullets from the same purchase dead in the cage. I removed them promptly and checked the other for any problems. One girl had dried poo all over her backside that closed her vent entirely, and i soaked her and removed as much as I could, but her vent looked prolapsed and then scabbed over. It was very disturbing to see. As i cleaned off the matted poo, she was trying so hard to get it all out, and it came out very thick and gritty with a fowl odor. Even after i got it all off of her, I saw her trying and trying to poo. Her backside was very swollen I'm guessing from being clogged up. She was dead this morning when I checked on her. We have all our chicks in a large wire bottomed cage. Earlier today when I checked on the chicks, I noticed one of them was bleeding at the spot where the tail feathers grow and the others were pecking at her, so i separated her and she's very skidish. I'm going to grab some Rooster booster tomorrow and dress her wound, and keep her up until it heals. -UPDATE- It looks like she's eating and drinking now. I poured a little acai juice in her waterer for electrolytes, and forced her to drink a little and then she started drinking it a little more. She's still very weak. I have pictures that i will upload in the morning.
