    Aww, poor girl. Can you tell if she's eggbound? How does her crop feel? Is it emptying in the morning? Let me tag an expert here..

    I think your chickens abdomen will feel tight. But I'm not the best person to ask on that, sorry. I'd wait until the experts come up.

    Thank you for your message. Based on your photos our birds seem to have the same issue. I have wormed my girl but her condition has not changed. I will worm her again on Sunday. See attached photos.
    Thank you
    John

    @John124 Is her comb that purple?
    Does she seem to have trouble breathing?
    What does her crop feel like?
    What did you use as a wormer?
    Also what do you normally feed, including treats? I see seeds and corn in her feed cup, does she have a full/fat abdomen (below the vent between the legs)?


    It can get confusing when more than one person posts about their sick hen in the same thread, but I'll give it a try.
    @1lilappy you are asking if worms can make your girl sick, but then you mention you are treating with Corid? Just in case....Corid is not a dewormer. You are adding 1 Tablespoon (you have tbs) of Corid to a gallon of water? If you have liquid Corid the dosage is 2 Teaspoons per gallon of water.
    I would check your hen for bloat/swelling/feeling of fluid in the abdomen. See that her crop is emptying overnight.
    The poop does not look good. Do you have a dewormer? (Fenbendazole or Valbazen)
