In the Brooder
- Jun 19, 2019
Noticed my 1 yo Appenzeller Spitzhauben was listless and lethargic 2 days ago. She is normally very friendly, loves being held, a real pet, but on Tuesday she was just standing in the coop, eyes closed, wings drooped. Picked her up and she's definitely lost weight. Brought her in Tuesday and since then have been giving Pedialyte, wet crumbles, I dewormed her, and am keeping her in a cool dark box. As of today, she's not dead, but I don't see much difference. Still won't eat or drink on her own. I'm incredibly worried about her. She's my favorite chicken. None of the others are exhibiting any of these symptoms. I gave Nutri-drench today, along with applesauce, yogurt, all kinds of stuff to see if she would have anymore energy. She preened for the first time today but again is very lethargic. Any suggestions? Ideas? I do not have a vet that sees chickens anywhere close. I do not see parasites in the poop, attached is pic. Again, no issue with other chickens.
