One of my chickens is sick. It's the nice and cute one, the one that greets me and is always interested in what food I'm bringing them. But today she just stood there, her wings sort of hanging and her body curled up a bit. I took her out of the cage and she didn't look as if she'd had diarrhea, I listened to her chest and her breathing sounded normal. Her heart was hammering away but smaller animals often have fast heart beats.

She closed her eyes immediately when I started scratching her neck and she sort of slumped down on my hand.

There's nothing visibly wrong with her so I'm sort of working in the dark.

If only she could tell me what's wrong or where it hurts : (

I'm not even sure she'll make it through the night. When chickens start showing that they're feeling sick they are VERY ill. Birds don't like to show weakness /illness.

And she's my favorite chicken too.
