I noticed this hen that was not eating, or rather "pretending" to eat. It would peck at the ground or at food but actually not pick it up and sometimes not even get close. I picked her up and she did not run like normal. Her crop is empty and she does not have the weight of a normal bird. She is now in a dog kennel in the house. I have had to force feed it because she just does not eat or drink. She pecks - but misses the food. I have yet to see her drink water so I am starting to take a medicine syringe to squirt down her throat. Her eyes are unfocused and she seems dizzy. This is most likely from lake of food thus the lack of energy.
How do I get her to eat - I have been even cooking for her - will she soon regain energy? She is about 2 years old. She is a mix breed and gets to free range often. Her comb is better color now that she is indoors but the inside of her mouth is somewhat white so maybe she needs something specific - I am afraid she will not last long. Thanks for any help
