    One of my chickens Bubbles was sick for 4 days.The first 2 days she wouldn't eat anything and was drinking heaps of water.She had clear diarrhea.We thought she just had worms so we gave her some treatment.The next day she was eating and pecking on her own.That day she layed an egg that was small and dark brown.It smelt really bad and had light yellow liquid in it that really did't look like an egg.After she layed it she was running around and seemed perfectly fine.The next day she got even worser then she actually was.She wouldn't stand on her own,had a light floppy comb with her tail down and droopy wings.Wherever i put her she would just lay down and sleep all day.We were going to take her to a vet the next day but she sadly passed away [​IMG].I really want to know what was wrong with her.
