    My 6 month old hen is throwing up brown bile and feels hot. She is not eating or drinking water. I just put her in a pen by herself with a bucket of fresh water and her own food to see if she will eat and drink. My other 11 hens are fine. I do let them out to free range 2 to 3 days a week. I wonder if she ate some grass with roundup that we used here on the farm. What can I do?

    i dont know what you could do but hope for the best, i once had a hen who drunk some weed killer, she did not throw up but was very sick for a wile (about 2 weeks) but she did recover and live.

    Will she drink? If you can get some water with poultry vitamins into her. Feel her crop. Pics if you can.
