I have a hen who has been listless and feeling very blah for a couple of weeks. Her tail is droopy, and her neck is contracted, so her head is near her shoulders. I call the the "ball of misery" position. She's been slowly wasting away for the two weeks, and she'll get the guillotine today. Her crop is not impacted. She is not eggbound (this started while she was molting, so she wasn't even laying). She does not have worms (I worm them every 6 months). She's been eating, has just light watery, white/green droppings. She's very emaciated. No respiratory problems. I had another hen do this same thing this Winter. Everything is very similar, except I'm pretty sure she had egg-laying issues - either getting bound up or internal layer. Whenever she did lay, it would be shell-less or just deformed in some way. My concern is that they if they both had the same thing wrong with them, that it could be some kind of contagious disease. Does this sound like anything anyone recognizes? Or is this just how old chicken bodies sometimes just fail and die?
