    I have 3 Rhode Island Reds,

    They are about 3 months old. I noticed today one was not her usual self. She was not running around with the others and being active. She mostly just sat there.i tried to hand feed her some of their food which is start and grow.But she didn't seem very interested.I separated her from the others and am watching her. Any suggestions?

    X2 on the link provided by Two Crows. What are her other symptoms? Is anything wrong with her crop?

    So sorry about your bird. You need to post this in our emergency section for some good help. Kelsie has left you with the link. I hope she makes a full recovery. [​IMG]

    If she is pale she may be anemic from internal or external parasites. Have you checked her for lice /mites? Has she ever been wormed.
