    Our bantam cochin was fine this morning acting broody in her nest box. This after noon dd noticed that she was lethargic and acting funny. She didn't want to get up and go free range with the others so we let her be. This evening she was under the heat lamp eyes closed labored breathing and looking practically dead. When I picked her up to bring her int he house her head dropped and liquid/water a lot of it poured from her mouth. I think she is not going to make it. What is wrong with her!

    She is gone ;( But I would still like help figuring out what it might be. Her vent was fine, she has been broody, didn't feel any stuck eggs. She gave me attitude when I check for an egg under her at 11 this morning, she didn't lay today. Her crop didn't feel funny, besides the puking of liquid. Her poops have seemed normal and nobody else seems sick, praying its nothing contagious. I have not seen any worms in any poops of any of the chickens but maybe I should worm anyhow??? I am at a loss!
