    Very sick chicken. She layed a soft egg on Wednesday and nothing since. Today she has both eyes swollen shut and puss around her mouth. She has green watery poop. Her breathing is very labored. She has been pecked on as well.
    I'm new to chickens and need help/advice. Please!

    For the meantime, I would separate her from the others, until you find out what she has and if it is contagious.

    Can you take her to a vet?
