Help my hen is really sick

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Rhode Island Red hen who recently became very sick. She looked very dazed so I separated her from the flock and put a heat lamp over her. The vet gave me medicine for meningitis and I have been giving it to her with cranberry juice but I don't see an improvement. I'm very worried and would like some advice !! Any help would be greatly appreciated I really don't want to lose my girl

Need a lot more info. there are so many things this could be.  How old is the bird, has she been laying, has she been dewormed, checked for mites/lice, any new birds brought in?  What medication did your vet prescribe and what diagnostic testing did he do?   

wife to long suffering husband who has built more miles of fence, barns, coops and enclosures then one man should have to, two teenage boys, current flock of 13 assorted hens, 1 big red roo and a list of other assorted farm animals.

Welcome to BYC! What medication did her give you?
