"Hello! I have a chicken help question! Yesterday, after being gone for 4hrs I came home to a chicken that could not stand or walk. When I left she was fine. I looked her all over and there were no signs of injury and her leg/foot was in working order with no cuts or sores. We had her up and sitting on our fingers and her grip is fine.When she does try to stand she extends her neck and drops her butt, then will fall to one side. When we looked her over the first time it seemed her belly had a hard place and her bottome looked like she was trying to lay an egg so we put her in a warm bath for 30mins. Then we did another exam and could not feel any eggs but the exam caused her to poo and it was yoke yellow. We have had issues with her egg laying in the past but never causing her not to walk. Currently we have her seperated in a small cage with food and water and covered. She is eating but will not walk but a few steps. Any clue what is going on? Thanks! Talisa
