Pale comb and tail down

by Cathie
(Mount Holly, nj)

I have a hen about 4 mth old. Her comb is pale and her tail is down. This has been going on for about 4 days. She eats and stands ok. She doesn't look injured. Just really sad. Was not really running with the others. Droppings 2 days ago were ok. I have separated her of last night, given her probios in water.

Pale comb tail down

Sorry to be so slow to answer you. Hoping this chick recovered. This could be many different issues. She may have eaten something toxic or be suffering from a chicken disease. Taking a chicken to the vet is generally not an option, due to the expense, so all you can do is treat symptoms and try to support them while they try to recover.
