How much charcoal to medicate my hens? - Page 2
I think you are going to weigh the risks vs. the benefits. If you are reluctant to worm her without proof of worms then have a fecal test done by a vet. The test is relatively inexpensive and will tell you exactly what her worm load is. You may not be able to see worms in your birds' waste. They are only visible to the naked eye when they are a big problem.
Peepers today. Using Safeguard Equine dewormer. Pea size for each. Hoping for the best! Right now Cherry is out with the other girls. She hopped around and kept up, now is laying probably tired from all that. She is not eating much, but alert and perked up.
I'll keep posting.
I have been doing some therapy in Cherry's limp leg. She does have some feeling in it because when I stretch it out she shows resistance and I can feel her leg muscles contracting. She also is able to slowly bring it up and scratch her head, and also able to make the same movement as if she scratching the ground for bugs. Her poop is still watery with green chunks.
At what point do I just give up? She is been sick since the 14h or 15th. Have any hens improved after presenting this symptoms? Oh, I still don't see any worms in their poop. This is the third day after deworming.
