I have had to order the cath/tube feeding supplies & have in the interim been force feeding (1/2 cc syringe fulls) her as best I can. I thought all was lost for her til her outing in the yard with me today.
No there was no major change, but... She ate grasses & insects everywhere within her reach. No, not enough to get her back to healthy... But, enough to give me hope for a chance.
If I can do this cath tube feeding like you both say when the supplies arrive, I think if she at least get her health, then, "maybe" I can find a vet or lab that will take her stool & "just maybe..."
I can fix what it is. I want the antibiotic you mentioned, but it's not anywhere to be found here. As of tomorrow morning (May 23) she will have been forced the Clindamycin I got form "a friend" for 10 days. I had thought 4-5 days in it was the answer, til 2 days ago, her poo started to get "green spots" (but not all green like before) again & the stink... So, I'm trying a version of wormer, but it's not the stuff I See you all recommending (it's just not avail around here...) This is just the last resort, the only possible thing I can think of that "may" have been the cause of the "initial backing up in her"
the thing that caused the, "Back up, The egg not passing, Then (because of the roosters) the Egg breaking inside, Then the infection & then the High fever (& possibly the cause of her paralysis_)to what she is today. Please help me find the Baytril on line if you can because, I know the standard time for antibiotics is 7-10 days & I already decided, today being the 10th day I would have to discontinue the (borrowed human antibiotics) fixed or not.
Thank you for replying. There have only been 2 real replies to help us over the last few weeks of my asking & I thank you & DarleneE for getting me this far & caring enough to do & say what you have. I'm hoping, after todays happenings in the yard that maybe... just maybe it's not for nothing. I hope to be sho\wing pictures of a happier, healthier hen in the future. Again, thank you both so much! You have no idea how this has helped me get the confidence to even, just order these supplies.
