Help! Young Nelly suddenly ill!

Recommended Posts



I'm normally a lurker but would appreciate any help regarding my 24 week old hen Nelly. She was fine yesterday but went to feed them this morning and found her pancake like and hot in the nesting box.


I got her out (as another chicken was trying to lay an egg on her head!) and she was quite floppy and the other two hens started pecking her. I separated her off and she laid her egg which looked normal. Her breathing seems to be a little laboured, tail down. I've syringed some water in to her. Her eyes seem bright but she has had a sloppy yellow poo.


Her vent is clean though, I'm a bit stumped.



Eta - have just got a bit of flubenvet down her.
