sick, barred plymouth type hen at least 6 months old has whitish diarrhoea, she has a clean nose and eyes, still eats well but drinks less, she seems to not be loosing weight and is still energetic but she starting seperating herself from the other chickens. We got her a month or two ago, her real age unknown. hasn't laid an egg until now and that same day her insides protruded out of her vent. we cracked the egg open to find it seemingly normal except odd acorn sized white lumpy clump, seperate from yolk. She has starting to walk funny, like a person constipated. we are new at this. the vet is unnfortunately not an option. is there anything we can do? We seperated her from the other chickens she is currently in a cage. we are considering letting her free range in a seperate location from the other chickens. we don't want to kill her unless that is the right thing to do. your help is appreciated. give her asprin or no?
