One of my friends just emailed me asking about her sick pullet. I have no idea what to do, I'm new to chickens myself. Here's her story: On Thursday morning my friend went outside to open the chickies door. After it was open they all came running out like they normally do, and she opened the side of the coop to do their food and water. She noticed one pullet was stuck under the small roosting bar. The chicken literally managed to wedge her neck as far under as it could go. My friend eventually got her unstuck. But, when they set the pullet down, she collapsed. She couldn't get up, so they moved her to one of the nesting boxes that we filled with hay. Then they closed the door to the coop so the other chicks couldnt bother her. They checked on her frequently throughout the day, and tried to give her some water, but she wouldn't drink it. That night, they decided to bring her inside, so the other chicks could sleep in their coop, and so the injured gal would be more comfortable. They filled a cardboard box with hay, and she rested in that all day Friday. Then, today, they decided it would be better to lay a blanket down with a towel over it, so she could stretch out her legs. She seems like she is a lot more comfy, and she is finally eating and drinking regularly. But...we don't know what the heck is wrong with her, or even what happened! As far as her injuries, they think there is something wrong with one of her legs, because when they move her, and set her back down, if she puts any pressure on her leg, she will start squirming and kicking until they finally settle her down onto her side. However, when she finally is calm and on her side, and they touch her legs, she doesn't care! They were even bending them up to her body like she would do when she roosts, and it didn't bother her at all. But there are even bigger problems...today she threw up, and it was bloody. Also, she is constantly opening and closing her mouth (like, literally every second....open, close, open, close). What is wrong with this little girl? My friend already lost three girls to a freak accident involving a dog. I'd hate to see her go through another loss. We are both very passionate about our chickens and want to do whatever we can to save them. Please help us!! This bird deserves a second chance: she's already made it four days. She's a fighter.
