chicken gone off food

One of our four rescue ROIs has been unusually quiet and inactive today,

she seems uninterested in food and looks almost red eyed.

DH had to pick her up to put her to bed long after the others had gone in.

I'm thinking she's on the way out, but we've only had them 3 months so can

it be old age? She has always been the quietest and most nervous of the 4.

any advice would be much appreciated. Smile

Try tempting her with chx porridge? Pellets mixed with warm water (add a bit of garlic/poultry spice seems to work well too)
Hope she picks up

Thanks Pickgo, but she didn't make it through the nightSad.

Other 3 seem ok though so fingers crossed it was a one off.
