I have a Leghorn that isn't looking to good and I am wondering what i can do to help her. She has droopy tail feathers and her bottom is quite a mess, her cone is greying and she just sits, when she does try to walk she tends to fall over. She is a rescue hen and I've had her for 2 years so she is quite old. She is still eating and drinking but not doing a lot else. She sits and closes her eyes. There is no evidence of discharge from her eyes or nose or difficulty breathing.
What i have done so far is to treat her for mites by dusting her and the rest of the flock, i have also put antibiotic in her water. I am yet to worm her as i did that in Jan.
I can't separate her from the flock as i don't have anywhere to put her and we have a dog that would love to eat her.......
Any advice or treatments other than the vet as hubby won't allow that and $$$ is an issue
I am happy to try as i don't want her to suffer. Hubby has offered to put her out of her misery but i just want to make sure i've given her every chance first.
