My chicken is walking like a penguin. Her abdomen feels like a giant water balloon. She is still eating but looks very uncomfortable and is struggling to move around. What can I do to help her?

We would like to have a couple of backyard chickens, but I also have a dog, is it safe for the dog to still be out in the yard with the risk of salmonilla. thuoc ga da
