    I have a sick EE and I dont know what to do...
    She will not eat or drink and she stands around puffed up in one place all day.
    I have her inside because there was a really bad storm and I knew she was bad off already.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!


    ETA: She has been like this for two days.

    How old is she?

    If she's a relatively young chicken, from chick up to several months, she might have Cocci. Have you noticed any blood in her poop? Can you give us any more information on your girl?

    Sorry, all the game playing threads keep knocking things back a lot. [​IMG]

    Has she laid an egg lately? Feel her abdomen and see if you can feel a stuck egg.

    Also, you said no poop? How does her crop look and feel? She may have an impacted crop. Do a search, I've never had to deal with it and can't really advise you on treatment.

    Hope you can get her better!

    You said no poop? How does her crop look and feel?

    Also, have you palpated her abdomen to see if she might be eggbound?
