    I Have a 4 month old lavender Orpington chicken that has acted weird today and has Orange poop. When I say she acts weird is that I go check on them 2 or 3 times a day and it's always by itself and it just lays there with its eyes closed and doesn't run when you come near beacause I can never walk up to it like that even on normal days........ Here is a pic of its poop and any help on what to do would be useful!!!!!!!!

    Try to get her to eat and drink lots. We have had chickens like this in the past, but unfortunately they all died. But that was because they didn't eat. If you get some food into her she should be fine. We never noticed ours were sick until too late.

    Uh... We force fed ours and that worked for a bit.. Hold open her beak and push some soft food into her mouth, but not too much. And from my experiences, DON"T give her vinegar or pellets, this chokes them. Be careful not to give her more than one beakful at a time... You could try giving her baby food, this is easy for them to swallow.

    I would for time being not feed, but push fluids. If you have electrolytes, use them. And, I would treat with a couple drops (use eye dropper) straight liquid Corid. Then mix Corid with water per bottle directions. Sounds like coccidia to me.

    Because she is so weak, give her the two drops of straight Corid by mouth. Then keep offering fluids. If it is coccidia she will perk up pretty quick, like eight or ten hours.
