    Hi all,
    I've woken up this morning to a sick isa brown. She was fine yesterday afternoon when I refilled feed after work, then my husband shut them away after dark. Unfortunately he didn't notice that she was still in the run, not in the coop, so she slept outside. He gave her some corn this morning which he says she ate. I went to check on her and she looks uncoordinated, putting one foot down upside down. I now have her in a cat cage inside and I can hear her breathing and clearing her throat. I checked her vent and it looks like she may have diarrhoea, but not sure. Her crop feels full. I am keeping her isolated and warm, but not sure what else to do. My vet knows nothing about chickens. Any ideas?

    Sorry no one responded to your thread. Is she okay?
