Black Sexlink very weak acting

Sorry that you had no response so far. Is her neck weak and droopy or is it stuck down? She sounds like she is very weak and dehydrated. If she is fairly young or new to you, she could have coccidiosis, and Corid (amprollium) in her water for 5 days will treat that. Worms can also be a problem. I would mix some of her feed with some raw egg, plain yogurt, and vitamins and electrolytes, and add water to make it runny. See if she will eat some. Do you know if she was vaccinated for Mareks disease? Mareks can cause some of the weakness, neck issues, and balance problems, but both dehydration or coccidiosis should be considered first. Let us know how she gets along.
Dosage of Corid is 1 1/2 tsp of the powder Corid, or 2 tsp of the liquid per gallon of water for 5 days. Valbazen is an excellent wormer. Dosage 1/2 ml orally, then repeat in 10 days.
