Chicken not eating, sits with mouth open (help please!)
I have a four year old chicken who hasn't laid an egg since October. She's really healthy, has beautiful feathers, her comb and wattles are red and full and her eyes are clear. However, I notice that she keeps her mouth open and is resting a lot more. She doesn't appear to have any problem breathing, she doesn't look in pain....
Today she doesn't want to leave the hen house and is just sitting on her roost.
I had this happen to one of my chickens before and they died soon after. I was told by several sources that this is a sign of a tumor.
Any advice would be appreciated.
