    About a week or two ago, we brought her in since her sisters were starving her. (she has a lot of feathers, but otherwise is emaciated) since we brought her in, all she's had is diarrhea, but otherwise is fine. Right now, she's lying on her side and gasping for air . with her eyes closed. Help please,

    How old is she? Could she have coccidiosis? That is treated with Cord (amprollium) in the water for 5-7 days. I would give her electrolytes with a dropper until you get Cord. The liquid dosage is 2 tap per gallon of water. Give her 2 drops of undiluted Cord right away, and make sure she drinks or give it to her.
