Sick chickie, not sure what is wrong - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 

Starting to think it is more to do with her gullet. She is drinking a lot of water. When we pick her up to try and feed her and put any pressure on her gullet, it makes a gurgley sound. Also if I put pressure on it, water comes out of her mouth. We just tried to feed her and she "coughed" up some goo. it was think and yellish. I really worked her gullet, but do not feel anything hard, but when I do it she can have water come op. Now she is coughing or kinda hiccuping a bit. I have no idea what is going on.

Corid seems to help pretty quickly (within a few days) if it is coccidiosis.  If you have't checked for a stuck egg, you might want to. Hopefully by tomorrow you will see a real improvement. Corid can make them need extra vitamin B (forgot which one) so you might want to add a vitamin supplement too.
