Chicken very still, feathers ruffled, messy bum

Recommended Posts

Hello, one of our hens is different today, very still and hardly moving, feathers a bit puffed out, messy vent. 


What is wrong? 

We've had chickens in the past that have started off similar to this and then have died. I believe in the past it was sour crop?

Sorry to reply this late. For some reason peoples first posts only show up days later. 

Hope you have taken your hen to the vet in the meantime. Once they look poorly, it is often past some home remedy and TLC. If you haven’t yet, I would take her to a vet. She might have an infection.
