Well you have discribed every symtom of a hen I have,  only she is pooping water.  She is very lathargic now, eating very little, drinking water, pale comb, big chest but nothing in it, light weight, not egg bound, not very old, gave her apple cider ving. for a month, no change, gave her pro-biotics for a month, now I'm giving her mineral oil in her water, and brought her inside today.  She is very cold, want's to put her head under the other chickens during the day and at night, I even gave her yogert, no change.  I'v ran out of ideas.  She is the high ranking hen to, she keeps everyone in order even though she is sick.  I didn't want to stress her by bringing her inside but I had to. oh forgot, wormed her about 3 months ago, after that she got sick.  Bad timing, or the wormer did it, not sure.  The other ones are fine, and I did them the same night.  What do ya all think? :cry:

I'd say she's very sick, and probably needs professional treatment.

Or culling  :(

what is an air sac
« Reply #28 on: January 02, 2008, 00:47 »
I notice she has a strange looking chest.  It looks full but it's not.  Could it be an air sac?   When she eats bread or other little things I give her, she goes after it like she is starving, eats a little, and her chest gets blown up.  I gave her the oil, does'nt seem to have made any differance yet.  Her mouth or breath does't smell at all.  She has been sitting around with puffed feathers and holds her head close to her shoulders, like she has no neck.  This makes the chest apear to be large.  I do feed alot of seeds like for birds, is that o.k.  She hasn't went poo yet, She drinks water, alot.  I can't put her down, she has been this way for a few months.  I'll try to help her, and let nature take it's course.  If ya all can think of something, I would try it.  yf Betty
