    i have a sick, 1 year old Braham and i don't know what's wrong with her. she seems a little inactive and has trouble flying or jumping up onto something. if she tries she usually falls back until the 3rd try. she has stopped laying, but that's just because it's autumn. her poops are pure liquid. she hasn't really lost a ton of weight and she seems to be eating. i just took the hens off a medicine they were on for a week. she goes out everyday with the others and goes back inside when it's dark. her comb is a nice, deep red and her eyes aren't watery and her noes isn't running. it's getting really cold here so i don't know if that has anything to do with anything. please help!

    Sorry I can't help. How is she doing today?
  3. ASAP - get her away from the other birds. That's always the first step. Beyond that all I'm good for is a "bump." Why were your birds medicated for a week?
