One of my chicken was really slow and quiet today. She was drinking and eating but she fell asleep while standing up pretty often. Her comb look paler than the other day. The rest of the flock is acting normally. I dont know if its me who see stuff that doesnt existbut i see a small bump at the end of her back/butt(see the picture).

Does chicken got days once in awhile that they just dont feel well like us?

Somebody got an idea of what she might have?

Thank you.

I don't think chickens have off days unless something is wrong. It could be any number of things. Check for mites and lice. Would she have worms? What is her poop like? Has she been injured?

At the top of this emergency section there is a lot of information. Maybe you can read that and get help. And give us some more information?

The poop looked greenish/gray and liquid. She looked better this morning but im gonna start a mites/lices treatment on them and in the coop anyway.

They all have been dewormed, i got the impression its related with the mites/lices... Does it make sense?

Thank you.
