Ruggy, my cuddly, 11 month old, white wyandotte, barren hen, passed this morning. For the past few days, I noticed her poop was watery with green chunks. When she started hanging out in the nest box..I thought her time has come, maybe she'll lay. When I realized that wasn't the case, I'd take her out and put her in the run with the others, but she was sluggish and her comb was dull. I scrambled some egg and fed the 3 girls their snacks, but Ruggy couldn't eat in peace as the others would give her a peck now and then. I then made the decision to take her into my house, hoping she would fair well away from that scene, get nourishment and a break from this winter weather. I put her in a large guinea pig cage, with her food and water..she ate and drank, and I felt optimistic. When I got up this morning, she was sitting down and her breathing was labored. I carried her outside, thinking the morning air would do her good, but her wings started flapping and it seemed she was seizing. She died in my arms. I don't know what was wrong with her, or if this is something I could prevent in the future. I loved my Ruggy, she was friendly and funny and I'll miss her terribly.
