Hi all, I'm a newbie chicken owner. My husband and I recently got 5 buff orps almost 2 weeks ago (they were 2 weeks old at that point). They're now 4 weeks. Yesterday morning we fed, watered, and checked everybody before leaving for work, and I came home to find a little girl who did not want to eat or drink. Everybody else was at the cage door waiting for me like usual and she just laid in the corner. I picked her up - she is one of the more nervous of the group so her allowing me to do that was new, so I knew something was up. I checked her over everywhere and couldn't see anything visibly wrong with her, stood her up and she rocked back to a plopped position. I tried hand feeding her and water, she wanted nothing to do with is. I seperated her immediately and attempted electrolytes with an eyedropper. I wet her beak and she eventually opened her mouth a little. She seemed VERY tired. Watching her try to walk it looked like she had some sort of stroke. She started to use her wings to keep her balance. I researched and researched last night of what it could be. Her fecal matter was a little runny and green and she only made one deposit around 8pm last night and nothing again after. When my husband got home he helped me give her more electrolytes and water which again, it was really only wetting her beak. We tried to get her to eat something and put some in her water and she seems to move her beak around it. She started laying on her side and slowly moving her one foot around. I would fold her wings back up and tried to pile shavings so she would at least have some support. The only vet I could think of taking her to was closed and is over an hour away from us, which would leave us with an ER vet who knows nothing about any type of bird. After the little bit of electrolytes she seemed a little stronger and we had hope. She made it through the night and was MUCH worse by this morning. Her beak was lacking color and her face had a greenish blue tinge to it. She was so exhausted her couldn't hold her head up and she just kept getting worse. We gave her more electrolytes and nothing was getting better, only worse. We humanely euthanized her this morning. Does anyone have any ideas what this could have been. I have gone through the lists of diseases and deficiencies and nothing seems to add up with what she was experiencing. I'm a complete wreck over this and I just wish there was more I could've done for her.
