    Calichicken2015 Chillin' With My Peeps

    Hi!
    Hoping you all can give me some information about my girl! Peep is a Banatam cochin/Silkie cross...3 years old. I have noticed that her poop is becoming more white than solid [​IMG] She did have a respiratory problem(runny beak/sneezing) and I took her to the vet. They gave her a shot of antibiotics and some Tylosin powder to put in her water. That was about 3 weeks ago and at that time she had diarrhea..poor girl!
    Anyway here is a picture of her poop...just wondering what is going on. She has been more quite and sleepy at times, but it has been so hot! We have her inside out of the heat , but our house still gets warm during the day! Se is still laying eggs every other day(typical for her) Eating, but not alot at times....heat???? [​IMG]
    I can feel she does have food in her crop.
    Any input would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!

    when it is hot out and chickens drink more water their poop looks like that

    Thanks! I am just not used to seeing her so slow and sleepy.Usually she is running around all over and then the poop, so I was starting to worry[​IMG] Poor girl! Hopefully it cools off soon!!! I am giving her watermelon and other cool treats that she likes, but today she is not very interested in any of it

    good! if her comb or wattles get shrunken that is a sure sign of dehydration.

    She has a pea comb(the silkie genetics I think?) But waddles are normal red color and look good! I have her inside out of the heat and sun, since I have to leave for work soon [​IMG] I have soaked her feet a couple of times when her wings are out and she is panting...wondering if I should dunk more of her body? This morning she is just setting on our floor and dozing off and on. Alter when I talk to her or she hears a funny noise [​IMG] Just a worried chicken momma!!!!

    you can set a fan up if you want, make sure she has enough water, and silkies have walnut combs so i don't know where she got the pea comb.
