Hi everyone,

I have a sick hen that’s about 2.5 years old. She has the characteristic signs of an illness: droopy wings, lethargic, poor appetite, droopy comb. She’s been like this for three days without any improvement.

No other chickens in the flock are sick or show similar signs. I originally thought it was egg bound (but vent is fine and she’s not waddling) or sour crop (no smell). Her crop is not full from not eating much but it is mushy. I treated with vitamins and apple cider vinegar in the water and probiotic yogurt. She is eating and drinking a little when offered.

any ideas? I attached pictures of the vent, poop, and the hen.
