Hi All,

I have a hen that I'm quickly trying to relieve of what I see as possible eggbinding.  I've read in some posts that Calcium should be given for the problem and that this can be via TUMS.  I have Tums (Regular Strength Antacid/Calcium Supplement).  How do I give this?  Crush into a powder and hope she eats it out of my hand?  Try to dissolve in water and give orally with a syringe?  And, how much do I give... Each tablet has 200mg of Calcium.  Thanks for your quick attention!!  I appreciate it!!

:)
