    I have read online that when people worm there birds sometimes some of the birds are effected in a bad way because the worms dont pass thru and they don't absorb in the body as protein...im not sure some people thought that is was coicidis lol not sure the spelling...but I didn't see any intestinal sheddings or blood...even in the poop in the morning it went from liquid to not liquid so I new that it passed thru at that point...I think the cold just got ahold of her and shut her system down...she is going to town right now in the dog pen...just scratching away....clucking saying let me out...once I got her body temp warm and that first 25ml down thru tube....she still was not acting right...and then two hours later I did the same...this is what I used for the mix...she still was not acting right but in the morning she was trying to just right out of the box...that I had next to the fireplace....then I took her out and put her in the dog kennel and put in some straw...and she just started to eat and drink...I did put sugar solution with vitamins and .5cc corid...and will leave her in the house for a week....and rethink about putting her outside....

    two cups water....tablespoon of sugar....pinch of electrolytes/vitamins....little bit of corn syrup...and alittle bit of molasses....mixed it up...making sure the water was warm to touch....and brought up 25 ml of fluid the first time....the second time I did the same....except when I drew up the 25ml of solution....I added at the end .5cc of corid.....ofcourse each time I made new solution...I did use a 1/.4inch aquarium line...that I made the edge of the tube that would be going down here throat rounded.....with a lighter...I put it in my mouth to see if it was sharp to the roof of my mouth to make sure she wouldn't get hurt....

    there is a point when you do this that the chicken will open the jaw wider allowing you to do this process if the bird doesn't do this then don't try and they will squirm around not letting you....she first wouldn't let me even open her mouth....but when I put alittle warm water in her mouth she knew what I was doing at that point and just took the tube...make sure to fully extend the neck and not to pinch the front part of the neck...
    this has been a great learning experience...
    thanks everyone so much...
