    Default Sick chicken

    Hi all. I have 3 chickens for laying they are almost 2 years old. I found one this afternoon sitting it won't stand or walk or move at all. It's eyes are bright it's plume (?) bright red. I can't feel anything or see anything that might be causing it distress. It is quiet and content and has been sitting in a box in the lounge for over three hours and hasn't moved. I am so worried Bout her. Any ideas?ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1382782563.232804.jpg this I how I found her.

    Hi bpac - one of my family members is a vet so I hope you don't mind but I have sent your question to her. I will let you know if I hear anything back. Hope it's not anything serious.
