    Hi there
    We have a 1 yr old chicken. She has been lethargic for few days. Diarrhea, keeping to herself, moving slowly. She is eating and drinking. I do not feel an egg nor an impacted crop. We are list as to what to do but she is not improving. When stressed seems to put bit of effort into breathing. Today started her on superboost this morning. We did flush her crop, nothing much came out. Bit of grass, watermelon and clear fluid. Discharge from vent is somewhat clear with sometimes greenish material. I feel she is deterioratin. Not sure what else to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    So sorry about your chicken. Sounds like she is quite ill and you are doing all I would have thought of.

    Please post the question under emergencies to see if those with experience can offer some help.

    I hope the ER thing starts working, I've noticed other BYC glitches since coming on.

    If you look at your profile page or in the ER section, you did post your question there. I hope someone can help you. :)
