Saha, try to seperate her for a few days and inject a little sugar water into her mouth everyday.
Do you need a cage?
The runny yellow poop (is it kind of frothy?) seems to happen monthly to a lot of birds and can be a false alarm sometimes. My 3 hens have it periodically for a day or two. She could be molting, which would make her low on energy and is known to turn the comb pale. But if she looks and acts really sick, then chances are she is sick. Make sure she isn't overrun by mites (look in her downy feathers), as they can be awful parasites, and you can try giving worm medication to all of your chickens, although it sounds like you haven't seen any worms. I doubt it's the cold, unless she sleeps in a poorly ventilated coop with too much humidity.
These are all possibilities - I'm not any kind of actual chicken health expert though, so take whatever sounds like it could be right and look into it further. Best of luck.
Wow Sasha, your not having much luck latley eh?
Well if you want some baby chick Black Copper Marans, let me know, I am picking up some on Saturday.
Don't tell Raven, it's a surprise.
Sasha, If you want, I would like to come by sometime and look into why your loosing chickens. Maybe what you need is some chickens that are laying already to restore your Mum;s faith?
Hi I had this exact problem with a lady a few months ago. I took a chicken first aid workshop late last year and I learned that "hey chickens die" If you've checked for mites, drafts etc then there's nothing you can do.
The tell tale sign that a chicken is sick is when she seperates herself from the flock. Since they don't want to show signs of weakness and get pecked at.
I bet if you got another hen she'll last for years!
It was out at in Abbotsford at the college I think.
What's going on with you chickens?
