She is a rescued ex-battery hen so I am not sure how old she is. All of my hens free range. It started about a week ago when she was reluctant to come out of her house and became very lethargic. I seperated her from the flock and brought her inside. Then I noticed bright lime green liquid poops; at this point she was still eating and drinking. I gave her vitamins and some scrambled egg and added ACV to her water. She then went off her food but continued to drink (a little excessively). Two days ago her skin started turning yellow. Her comb is cold and scaby too. I immediately thought possible kidney/liver failure but I have very limited knowledge of this. Her crop has not emptied and is possibly sour. It feels swollen and squishy. I have been tube feeding natural probiotic yogurt and started giving her baytril. I have massaged the crop but I am reluctant to tilt her for fear of her aspirating. She no longer look as yellow as she did but her eyes are dull and seems to be very poorly. Please advise if you can. This adorable hen is tame and we nursed her back to health when she was extremely sick, when first rescued. She loves to be petted and is so very friendly. I'd really appreciate any help or advice. I'm concerned that I may be providing inappropriate treatment. Could olive/fish oil be a good option or epsom salts? I just don't know what else to do.
Thank you in advance
