    Hey everyone!

    My 7 month old pullet is sick! She is still walking around but sometimes just standing still for a few minutes. This morning she pooped watery stuff with a bit of white in it. I gave her some food scraps (strawberries, bread etc.) and she had a tiny bit but normally she eats a lot. she is a bit slow and she lets me pick her up which she barely ever does.

    PLEASE HELP ME!

    Thanks in advance!

    Oh, and I forgot to say:

    About a week ago she had little pussy scabs on her comb. Apparently, they are a fungal infection. Would these 2 things have anything to do with eachother?

    This illness following the scabs illness...I don't know. I would feed her only chicken feed until she is all better. Chicken feed is specially formulated to have everything a chicken needs. Sometimes other foods don't sit well with their digestive tracts. Some seemingly innocent foods can be very bad for them also. For example, potatoe peels, cooked or raw are poision for chickens. When you see watery poo, it sounds like a digestive tract problem. You will need to separate this one from the rest of the flock. I hope you are able to solve this problem.
