Undigested food in droppings, update on page 3 - Page 7

post #61 of 67

I looked at the first video of Coho--She is really pretty!

 

I've had birds die of of an internal fungal infection, and since have created a web page about treatments. If it might be of help, it's on my PoultryPedia.com website.

 

I've also had birds with Lymphoid Leukosis. Coho's symptoms & watching her behavior make me wonder if that's possibly what she might have instead??? If you want to look some up, there is info on that at:

How is Coho doing now??

Coho is doing great! She is totally back to normal now and blusters around like a springy young hen. The medication really helped, and then feeding kefir grains afterward to repopulate her good bacterial flora brought her back to 100%.

Yay!!! wee.gif So glad your sweet hen rebounded so well! You were really good to her, giving her so much careful care.

My chickens were attacked the other day. The RIR was killed and the leghorn's (Ms. Foggy) comb was mildly injured which I treated. Ms. Foggy was in shock but I took care if her and she got better. I noticed yesterday that she wasn't acting well, she was acting lethargic, drinking lots of water, not eating and having loss stool that had a dark green center. She not better today and I've done some research. It sounds like clostridium prefringen. I have penicillin g that I can give her. Is this ok and what diet should she eat?

I recommend starting a new thread in this same "Emergencies" section of the forum. Give it a good, descriptive title & it will probably help draw in replies from people with knowledge on similar symptoms

I hope you get some good input.

What did the vet prescribe her? I have a similar situation happening with my chicken and I have an appointment in a few hours.
