Please Help! I have a very sick young hen. She hasn't started laying yet. Her comb is pale, her crop is squishy but small. She is having water diarrhea. She won't eat. She stands and pants tail down, wings sagging down and her feet feel very hot. she has been in the house for two days. I thought overheated and gave her electrolytes and soaked her in a tub the first day and then started checking for being eggbound. Her vent is very small and i don't feel anything hard around it. I honestly don't see how an egg can come out of the vent hole. It is really small maybe dehydrated. Then I started checking for sour crop. It does smell bad out of her beak when i pushed on the crop. I can hear it is pretty squishy in there. But do her other symptoms match? What do I do.
