Hi!I have two possible sickies The first is a Mama hen. She had been broody for 2 weeks (we were kicking her out every day to eat and potty), so we got her some eggs. She sat on them, with fresh food and water right in front of her, in solitude, for 16 days before getting up and pooping and peeing EVERYWHERE. She went back and never got up again. We moved her to the bathtub last night for the hatching, and her box was wet with pee (BAD ammonia smell!) We changed it and the bedding out before putting her in the tub. She smells HORRIBLE, though, and is constantly preening her back and underbelly feathers. While waiting for babies to hatch, we have noticed that she has moments of pain and clucking (her eyes close, she will strain, it looks like, to use the bathroom, and has gad). She will cluck while doing this. Before anyone hatched, we gave her a scrambled egg, and she ate half of it. We also added vitamins and ACV to her water. Is this normal? She smells so bad, I am afraid of the ammonia for the babies. I am also afraid of her pain! I suppose 3 weeks with 2 or 3 potty breaks would make me contipated, too, but I want to know if it is normal. The other chicken is Henny Penny. We have her in a rubbermaid box in the garage because she was puffed up and hunched pretty often for 2 - 3 days. She was off by herself often, too, but that is normal for her. She has always had oddities. . .she is always the last one out of the copp in the monring and the last into it at night. Her mornings start very slowly. She is slow to get with the program, so to speak! Once we got her inside the garage, she was drinking like CRAZY. She seems very thirsty in general. We add ACV and garlic to her water, along with Poly-visol. We also gave her seeds, which she seemed fien with at first. Now, she doesn't want to eat, though she devoured a scrambled egg today (after the trip outside). Her poops are runny. She seemed depressed and ready to leave this morning, so hubby let her out. He said she acted drunk and like she couldn't stand. He tried to grab her, but she ran just fine! So he chased her, caught her, and brought her back. Just as a side note, 4 months ago, Henny had a pecked eye. We had never, and have never since, had any pecking or fighting in the coop. But, one mornign, she took way long to come out, and her eye was bloody. Her head looked a little swollen on that side. After washing it with peroxide and water, it looked like it was missing and had scabbed over. The next day, though, and a few washings later, the scab fell off and her eye was fine! Anyway, we kept her a week and released her She has been fine until now. Oh--both hens are 12-14 months old. And we have one baby chick! She pipped out early by almost a day! Everyone else, or at least the eggs we see, have pipped but not cracked a lid yet. Mama is keep baby under her wing, but she peeks out when she can! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
