I gladly donate my time to help chicken owners in need. So if you have a sick chicken please:



Put her in a cage or crate and make sure that she is warm. Wrap a towel around her if she seems stressed. Keep her in quiet location


She needs to stand up and walk at least once in 24 hours


Keep her away from other chickens


Look for any injuries


Try to see if she will eat food or drink anything


Check her poop on the poop chart
