    I have a chook who has been unwell since Friday afternoon. I visited the vet (sans chook) and he's given me some antibiotics to give her, though not really sure what is wrong, but suspects egg-binding.

    She has had really stinky diarrhoea, will eat and drink if offered to her, walked around outside a bit today but prefers to be sitting down, despite having a good grip on both feet. She looks alert and her comb is up.

    Does this sound like egg-binding to anyone? Or do you think it may be something else?[​IMG]

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Currently she is in the bathroom being kept warm, away from our other girls.

    Thanks in advance for your help!
