I lost the link to the previous discussions on this topic, so I'm hoping for more info... Her sisters are fine - free-range on 2 acres and cooped @ night. This one hen, however, can't use her legs at all for the last 2 weeks. One foot has curled toes, the other she sticks straight out in front of her. I have her in the house in a cage in the spare bathroom, with 1/2 her space on a heating pad (low) - gets chilly here @ night now. She's in a shoebox, with rolled newspaper supporting her so she's upright and can eat. I've been feedig her organic lay crumbles+scratch and "assisted" feeding scrambled egg + B vitamins + live cultured yogurt. Also 3cc of an electrolyte/vitamin mixture 2X/day. She talks, and is very aware of her surroundings. Her poops are beautiful (except for the egg smell!) She eats her crumbles+scratch, but not a lot. She doesn't seem dehydrated, but I only KNOW that she gets the vitamin water 2X/day. There are bits of crumbles in her water, so I'm hoping that's from drinking. Any ideas? Would a "Vitamin shot from the vet help? Is it time to say "Good Bye"? I really hope not. Thanks for any input - really!
