Does anyone have any experience treating a hen with ascites? My Silver hen is a little silver leghorn. She is 4 yrs old. She has seemed to be moving slower for a little while now. I finally decided she was filling with fluid so last night decided to drain some fluid out of her. I pulled 36 ml out of her abdomen last night. She is definitely moving better this morning. I think she still has more fluid in there, but am going to wait a couple days to try again. I've read that nothing will cure this problem and it will build up again, but am wanting to keep Silver going as long as possible. Does anyone have any input and experience in dealing with this issue?
