    my hen is sick, her tail is down, her head is down and her waddle is half pale, grayish, she won't sit on the perch, i had found her in the nesting box at night about 1 week ago , i think she's the same one i brought in a week earlier for liquid frozen crap, that's right , very large block of green ewe, had to wash her with warm water, any how, she's very lethargic/weak too,

    what to do??,, i am giving her plain yogurt, little chick crumbles ( read somewhere not to feed layer pellets if she's not laying eggs)

    and just started to add a little amount of Epsom salt for diarrhea..

    No epsom salts, that could make her sicker. Can you put her in a warm room (80-85 degrees)?
