Lethargic chickie help, please. 😞
She sat in the hot coop all day, it seems like she didn't get up and follow the others out. I walked in and picked her up, which my chickens do not let me do.
I set her down outside. Mixed up some chicken electrolytes, fed her with the dropper. She did start warming up to it.
She let me hold her upside down while I searched for lesions, mites, holes. I saw a few flea-like creatures.
She is quarantined in the basement with the kittens. (FML)
Mixed some DE with the wood shavings.
Gave her a fresh cucumber 🥒 from the garden, she took a few bites.
She got her own bowl of scratch and #pumpkinchickenchew.
She did eat but seems like she can't stand. Earlier when she stood, she rested on a wing.
She's about 6 months old, not laying yet.
It's been hot ☀️and humid 💦 in Pennsylvania, about 90° today.
Other chickens seem normal.
