Hi, This is not much of introduction... I'll have to do one later! One of my ex-battery hens (I have had for around 2 months) fell ill last Saturday- I diagnosed her with an impacted crop and spent the last week massaging it and taking her to the vet. The vet was willing to cut it open and remove the mass and told me to feed her liquids to keep her going until the operation. So for 3 days I fed her anything liquid that would keep her alive- milk, mashed peas, apple juice, apple sauce (homemade so no added sugars) and egg. By Thursday morning (the day of the operation) I went to check on her and the mass in her crop was gone and it felt normal again. I took her to the vet just to be sure and she agreed with me and advised me to keep finding liquids for another day to get her back on track. However yesterday I noticed a deterioration in her behaviour, she was standing on one leg with her left eye closed. Although drinking a little she showed no interest in food and I was worried but had to leave her with my mum as I went to school. This morning she was worse- she seems to be unable to stand at all and is putting no weight on her right leg. She is off balance and when i put her down she topples on to her side. Her eyes are always shut, only occasionally opening one if I disturb her. Her comb although not the reddest usually is quite pale. She is not making any noise and isn't drinking or eating much if any. She has only pooped once and it was rather yellow-ish. I can't feel any egg inside but I'm not sure or experienced! She is inside away from the other hen and I have given her her usual layers mash and some scrambled egg (which she ignored) Any help is appreciated I do not want to lose her Thank you so much!
