So after a trip to the vet, my 12 week old pullet is on two different liquid medicines, which I have to administer a total of four times per day (.04-1ml per dose, depending on the medicine). Despite looking at diagrams and being taught how by the vet, horror stories of syringe medication drowning birds have got me extremely paranoid. I've even taken to putting my ear right on her back to try and listen for something out of the ordinary after I give her the meds. Are there any signs of liquid aspiration to look out for? Would it be possible to accidentally get the liquid in her trachea and she just would not react to it at all? Any sounds to be aware of in her breathing? Or is it just immediate death or eventual pneumonia, without warning?
