    I came home last night after being away for 4 days (had friend checking on girls) and today when my husband let them out one of our americauna girls was very quiet. once I got home a few hours later I found her very unresponsive laying in some bushes. She was cold and still. She does not even open her eyes. She is about 5-6 months old. I have her inside warming. She is almost like she is still sleeping.. breathing steady. Last week she was running and playing. A 6 month RIR was off last weekend, but seemed better over weekend. Today I found her in the corner of the coop. Easily picked up and sleepy. I have her inside too. Trying to force her to eat some yogurt and eggs and drink some water. Please someone help... I have had such a hard time with my chicken raising... have already had 11 deaths since started in May!!!! I just don't understand.

    as well I noted that the RIR's poop is liquid and yellow in color. No idea on the americauna's.
