Hi all - I have a 2 year old Buff Orpington who has been steadily losing weight. She was acting "off" a couple weeks ago so I brought her in the house and made her comfortable in the guest bathtub. I felt her crop and it was "squish" and she was off food - thinking it might be sour crop, I gave her a twice a day dosing of epsom salt to "flush" her out - it seemed to work and she was back to food and water and her poop regained a normal shape. Fast forward a week and I notice her hobbling around the coop so I bring her into the house again and she has a very mild case of bumblefoot. So I pack her up and we head to the vet. Vet says she's extremely sick - 3.2 lbs and 106 temperature. At this point she's eating like a small horse and I'm thinking she's still getting over whatever had her under the weather the week before. I start her on the antibiotics (Vetrimycin) and bring another chicken in to keep her company so she doesn't get depressed. Well here we are four days into the antibiotics and she's having liquid poo and not eating or drinking. I'm syringe feeding her water with priobiotics thinking her gut might be taking the hit for the antibiotics but I'm kindof lost in this vicious circle and didn't know if anyone had any suggestions of how to help her feel better? She won't touch squash or her favorite, corn which I mashed up for her and eats about 2-3 bites of chicken crumble at the most.
