Hi! I am new to chicken keeping and have had my bunch for about three months. Today, I have encountered our first medical issue (other than basic wound care). One black Silkie hen, Sirius, would not stand up today when I opened the coop to let everyone out. She can stand but will not walk. If she was sitting on one of the nests, I would assume broody, but she was sitting in the middle of the floor by the hanging feeder. I set up a large cat crate with straw, food and water (with a capful of Pedialyte) and brought her inside for observation. After some research, this is what I have observed and done: Gently palpated around and behind her vent to see if she is egg bound. I didn't feel an egg, but I have never done this before. She did have a poop stuck in her feathers, probably from sitting while pooping, but it looked healthy brown and solid, no green or yellow. I carefully trimmed it off. Checked her feet- they look good, no wounds, frostbite or curled toes Checked her eyes- her left eye looks a little cloudy. The third eyelid was up, so the cloudy bit might just be film. I couldn't tell if her pupils were reactive to light because her eyes are so dark. Her pupils did not appear to be oddly shaped, as far as I could see. I'm going to flush her eye when I locate our bottle of plain saline solution. She seems to be in good spirits, quietly clucking at me and receptive to attention. She is a very sweet, snuggly girl and seemed pleased to be in my lap for her exam. Also, when I held her water dish up to her while she was on my lap, she immediately dipped in for a drink. Same with the food dish, but I don't think she actually ate anything. Her wings seem fine, she has been flapping them to get her balance when I place her on the floor. Her legs support her, but she just stands there. She has been moving around the crate, but she does it by wiggling, not walking. General info: she has recently started to lay eggs, maybe a little less than a month ago. I do not know how old she is, but I think it is less than one year. She seemed a little distant yesterday. In the morning, she did the rounds with the other chickens, but by afternoon, she was by herself. Every time I went outside, she was by herself, hanging out between the coop and the house (our chickens free range). I think she may have had runny poop a few days ago because I saw a bit of white by her vent. It wasn't a lot, I noticed it against her black feathers and didn't give it a second thought. She doesn't seem thrilled when I take the eggs, but she has not growled or fluffed at me. She follows me to the door like she is wondering where I am taking the eggs. I do not know if she has been laying eggs the past few days. We have 3 silkie hens (maybe 4-one has be impossible to sex so far). Last week, I was getting 3 eggs a day from them, this week I am getting only 1 or 2 per day, but I can't tell who is laying and who is not. That's all the info I can think of to list. Any opinions or ideas would be super appreciated. Thank you!
