    One of my americana hens weems to have taken ill, white runny poop dried on her vent feathers, comb seems limp and dark compared to her sisters and is uncharacteristically easy to catch. I cleaned off her vent feathers with warm water and put her back in the coop. Any cures? Thanks!!

    I am having the same problem with one of my 2 day old chickens. It's a clear and white discharge. This same bird also could not walk for about 24 hours. Now it is getting around a little better but the discharge is very concerning. Please help.

    I researched the symptoms and it looks like she had fowl cholera! i dispatched her this morning, she was getting worse....now for dispatching the rodents, which are one cause.
