Whats her problem

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by CountryRoosterUSA, Jan 5, 2011.

  1. My hen {red star} 15mo. old. Is staying to herself standing on one leg all puffed up, not moving around much, most of the time with her eyes shut and will shake her head from time to time. She will eat and drink, but I don't think as much as usual. I have checked under her wing and around vent {no lice or mites}. Also no discharge from her nose ,eyes or mouth. She is not gasping for air or breathing through her mouth. I gave her some bread soaked in olive oil and scambled eggs, she ate it all as soon as I put it down. Her comb and waddle are light pink. There is organtic acv in their water. Does anyone have an idea what could be wrong with her? The rest of the girls don't do this.[​IMG]

    Not sure, but she sounds sick. I would bring her into a warm place (large cardboard box in garage if nothing else is available) and monitor her more closely. You might also re-post your question in the illness section. Try to answer all the questions at the top of the section when you post.

    Good Luck.
