    I have an Australorp that won't move. This morning she was sort of laying on her chest with one wing splayed out. She has a bunch of poo matted on her rear. She can seem to stand just fine, but won't move and has her head hanging low. Is there any recommendation on the first 3 or 4 things to check? She is around 1.5 yrs old. Thanks for the help!!!

    I have no experience to help with this, but you might want to post this in the emergencies/illness forum for a faster response! Good luck!
