Silver Laced Wyandott about 9 months old. Pale comb, drooping wings, lethargic, watery, runny poo, doesn't want to eat or drink. Started to notice on Friday that she was just sitting around a lot, caught her in the nesting box but it just looked like she wanted to sleep in it. Wasn't around much on Saturday or Sunday to really observe her a lot. This morning I brought warm mash in and everyone was eating but her. I brought her in the house and tried to tempt her with some scrambled eggs and meal worms and she won't eat. Gave her a warm sitz bath in case she's egg bound to see if that would help. I don't know what else to do. This is my first year with chickens (lost 2 to meraks in July). The chicken vet has limited hours so I'm still checking to see her, but want to help my poor Lacey in the meantime.
