Hey All, I posted a topic the other day about my Barred Rock being lethargic. I thought it was because she was the culprit in eating another chicken. I am still unclear if she was the one who did the damage. Anyway, I notice a lump by her ear. Some say it is the lobe others say it is the upper part of the waddles. All I know is it is the piece of red between ear hole and waddles. It is swollen on the one side. I felt it and it is squishy but there kinda feels like there is something in there. I have given her some yogurt as to which she isnt really eating any of it. I have her in a seperate run that the other chickens. I opened the door to let her and the one that was bitten up out of sick back. She dragged herself out of the run and is just sitting there in the grass. Her pooh is greenish yellowish. I felt her crop and it seems fine. It isnt too large or too small. But I guess it is on the bigger size for her if she has not eaten much. I made her a mixture this morning of yogurt, thyme, black pepper, cloves and a little oregano. It is suppose to help so I read. She wouldnt eat it. I layed her down and put some in her mouth. She just layed there feet sticking up in the air and eyes closed. I stroked her throat hoping she would swallow the yogurt mixture and she finally did. I waiting to see if she would turn her self right side up and she didnt so then I did it for her. She is just sitting there with her eyes closed in the yard. I can not run to tractor supply it is too far for antibiodics. Can I crush up human antibiodics? Does anyone even think that would work? Any suggestions? THanks!
