    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! Sorry to hear you have a poorly bird. Please do post in the emergency section ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
    Give as much detail as you can. What's the poop like? Is it eating and drinking? Have you checked for lice and mites? Any discharge from the nostrils or eyes? A pic is also most helpful.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow
