Weak Chicken

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My Dominique just got over a bad case of sour crop - she seems to be doing fine now but is incredibly weak. She hasn't been wanting to eat the pellets, and eats just a little bit when crumbled. She's eats a ton whenever we give her strawberries or hard-boiled eggs. Is there anything specific we should be feeding her to help her get her strength back?
Thanks!

Maybe give her some electrolytes in the water. Try mixing some feed into the hard-boiled or scrambled eggs.

I would try giving her wet food. You soak her layer pellets in water to make them easier to digest. You can mix in vitamins/electrolytes, yogurt, probiotics, egg, tuna, etc, if you wish.

If she is extremely weak, you may want to separate her (preferably in or near the run, so she is still part of the flock) and let her have her own water and food for a period of time.
