How To Open a Chicken's mouth

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This may come in handy during syringe feeding, tube feeding or giving a chook medicine.

This works on all breeds all ages.

This does not hurt the chicken.


My helpful volunteer Wallace:


Step 1.


Step2

I tried that with mine because I wanted to give her water in a syringe, but when I got to the third step, she shook her head side to side and wouldn't hold her mouth open. Do you know how I can stop this?

 

Thank you,

Demi

I have 2 silkies - Gracie and Angel, and a Frizzle - Pearl. In total, I have had 9 chickens, all of which have had their fill of cuddles and coming inside! I am addicted to ALL animals ;)

If you can get someone else to give her the water while you hold her still that should work.

( we had to do this for a very powerful gold laced Wyandotte we have)
