    I gave her a couple days and been giveing her vit-al water sup. (the whole flock.) Trimmed Shat caked feathers. She is constantly drinking rain puddled water. (they fresh water to access all day) And she is lethargic in movement. But will scurry away when I approach her. Her Eyes are White with black pupils. Comb is flopped over. What should I do about this. I don't want to cull if she gets worse, But I may have to.........

    I don't know much, since I'm new, but that sounds like something I read. You need an antibiotic for her. Duramycin-10. It sounds like Infectious Synovitis. Look that up and see if it sounds like what she has.

    Good luck!

    Sorry, but update on what?

    What is the problem here? Have you posted somewhere else? If you add the link to it or combine this post with it, maybe we can help you better. But with the title of your post and missing information, sorry, I am lost here.

    I got her from a farm where I got the rest of my chickens. I ended up with a rooster so they exchanged the roo for this bird. And she just lones by herself. She was active and very sprite. Now acts like she is 80. She has been like this for 5 days. When she free ranges she sits under the same tree and doesn't move much. I don't know if she is an old bird or what. But she moves very slow and is not as alert as the rest of the chickens. Very slow motions. I haven't noticed her laying anything. So I don't know what to do. But she will poo sitting down and not even move. Unless there is a threat.

    I'd call the previous owner and find out their age, worming history, any other health issues etc...then go from there. Sorry, not much info to go on.
