Some lice like the vent, some under the wings, the ones you found like the thigh and the ones I just found on my peahen like the eyes and ears!

They look pretty normal except they have what looks like mucus?

I agree they look pretty normal. Much better than the first photo, so I think the meds are working.

She is still not gaining any weight and is not strong on her legs :( The cocci treatment has finished and I left a day and started a fresh flubenvet course "hoping" it is a worm issue, but she is not passing any worms. She has vitamin water (yes, she is drinking) and mineral powder in her chick mash, and she will eat mealworms if I offer them to her. She wont touch egg cooked in any way or anything else for that matter :( I am stumped for what is wrong with her now. She is much perkier in her manner and chatting alot, but it's just the weight gain I cannot fathom. Any more ideas for me?

 

Thanks,

 

Tasha :)

Well, sadly we may come to Mareks, or she had a nasty enough Coccidiosis load that her overall health has been compromised.

 

Or it is something else altogether. Hard to know without lab tests and exam.

 

Some simply don't make it for a myriad of reasons, often genetically related or internal cancer. Some simply don't have strong enough immune systems (genetically related) and catch everything until something takes them out....a failure to thrive.

 

You've done your best. Keep supplying her with nutrients and mash and hope for the best, however she may have a slow slide out. You could do a round of broad based antibiotics in a 'hail mary pass" to catch something lurking.

 

I find my specialty breeds often are the ones that have the failure to thrive as the rarer breeds usually have been in breed too much producing immune issues.

I don't know what to do.. she has such a strong will, but maybe I am hurting her more keeping her alive. It is like she wants and needs something, but I just do not know what it is, and bless her she cannot tell me. Raising from chicks is hard hard and heart breaking :(

My first sign of a cocci problem was slightly listless birds...which I was too busy with a family illness to really pay attention to. I got behind the incident and ended up eventually losing 2 young pullets as it can drag on if it scars their intestines.

 

So yeah, I tend to go more aggressive now and treat with meds if I truly suspicion real blood (vs. shed lining).

I agree; just treat them. Better to be safe than sorry.
