I added some chickens to an existing flock two weeks ago, including one bardrock, which was immediately pursued and picked on by the others. They left it alone after a while and she stayed away from them for a day and then became braver. I didn't notice anything unusual, except that in the last week, she hasn't been going up on the roost at night. I found her very light compared to the others, and was concerned about her not roosting, but she seemed OK otherwise. Yesterday morning, I noticed she was sitting apart, but she did go out side. Now this morning, she was down, listless, didn't react when I picked her up, no interest in food or water. Then I noticed that her wattle and comb are very dry. I don't see any evidence of diarrhea and can't see any mites on her. I wonder if she just hadn't been eating or drinking. I've taken her inside in a dog kennel and started giving her water with sugar and salt via a syringe. She isn't making any attempt to drink from the syringe. After about 30 mls, she seemed to become a bit feistier and was standing up for a moment. So I continued giving her the electrolyte solution every hour, but then after a few hours, she started to go down again. Can't stand, head sinks down, eyes keep closing, though she does fight me a bit when I give her the solution. I know it's risky giving her the fluid by syringe, as she could aspirate, but it seems I don't have much choice. Any suggestions? I'm afraid I'm going to lose her and that would be very sad.
