Hi i’m very new to this but I have a 5 year old Silkie hen who has been getting worse the past couple of days. About a week ago i noticed she was limping and brought her inside for inspection. Her right foot was clumped with rock solid mud but i gave her a warm bath and gently got it all off and checked for any injuries, and she seemed fine after that with no visible openings in her skin. Yesterday though i realised she was extremely unwell. Unable to stand and super lethargic. I’ve been keeping her inside to monitor her, but she isn’t getting any better. She hasn’t eaten or drank anything, and doesn’t seem tempted by her favourite treats. At first, her poo was liquid and yellow - almost like wee. Now, it’s white, but still not solid. She is unable to stand up and falls forward whenever she tries to, and last night she was breathing strangely, almost rasping - but that has since stopped. I have tried to open her mouth and give her some water, as well as probiotic yoghurt and boiled egg yolk mushed together, but she desperately doesn’t want to eat or drink. She’s definitely a fighter, as I thought she was going to die in my arms yesterday, and it sounds harsh but my mum doesn’t want to take her to the vets, as she is old-ish and hasn’t been laying very well for a while. Is it just her time? or is it a disease of some sort that we need to stop our other chickens from getting? It’s been awful seeing her like this and I’ve tried everything I’ve felt safe and necessary for her. Just need some friendly advice. I’ve added some pictures of her from last night.
