    Found an older hen ( about 5 years old ) spacey ....... she was semi wobbly on her feet ... not going in the coop at dusk .... she let me pick her up ( this has NEVER happened ! ) .. her comb was flopped over .... her crop was mushy ... I have her isolated , gave her water, and she has eaten yogurt .... She pooped forcefully and it was just water !! ( clear ) ...... her backside has poo on it ....

    Any idea what is going on , what I can do ?!?!

    I'll get pictures tomorrow ...

    If you can bring her in, I can tell you some other things for her. Just need to know how hard you want to try to save her...
