Sick and smelly
My pet 1 year-old Isa Brown is sick and I would welcome any suggestions. For the past 24-36 hours she was noticeably farting heaps and really foul. Last night, sitting on my lap, she let go a huge wet shell-less egg. Her droppings overnight and today are runny and yellowish. She is listless, but eating and drinking a bit. Her crop seems to be very full of a really foul smelling liquid, which she occasionally spits up- it smells like super strong horse-shit or diarrhea. She is normally active, happy healthy, a spoilt pet and daily layer, though she did have a prolapse episode about 6-8 weeks ago. Can anyone help with diagnosis or treatment, as she is a much loved and hilarious member of our menagerie/family.
