No I am not certain, however yesterday she was open mouth breathing and now she is unable to walk. She won't eat or drink much either. I posted a different thread earlier but didn't get much of a response. uchare you sure the chicken needs antibiotics? what is the diagnoses? the reason they arent readily available is because people use them too much when they arent needed and have contributed to the development of superbugs
My hen won't walk, eat or drink. Does anyone know where I can get some antibiotics online? If so, which one?

Last night I went to close up my coop and check on my girls and one of my hens was wheezing. This morning I went to check on her and she was laying on the floor of the coop and wouldn't get up. I separated her into a dog kennel with food and water and she won't eat or drink. Also has loose stool. I am new to owning chickens so I'm not sure what to do! k
She is about 5 months old. She hasn't laid yet that I have noticed, I am located in Colorado and the weather has been dry but pretty mild and warm. She is on a heart hen pellet food. I did bring her into a warmer area and she seems like she may have eaten a couple pieces of food and maybe a little bit of water but not much. Tomorrow I'll check her more thoughroly, she was pretty stressed out earlier when I moved her inside. Last night when I checked on her she was open mouth breathing but I haven't noticed it since. My girls have a coop with a run but I let them out into the yard for a couple hours out of the day usually.
I need to administer this to my hen. Thanks for the help so far but I was wondering how much water do you dissolve the 250mg in? Is it a Liter or a gallon? I’ve heard so many different numbers so I’m a bit confused.Amoxicillin is a good all purpose, broad spectrum antibiotic. Fish meds work fine for chickens and don't require a prescription. The daily dose is 250mg for a standard adult chicken. So you would need to divide this 500mg pill in half. I used to get 250mg amoxicillin from this place, https://www.kvsupply.com/item/thomas-labs-fish-mox-forte-500mg-x-100ct/P01800/ but they quit carrying it. They also carry other meds.
