In the Brooder
- Mar 6, 2014
I have a white easter egger. She has been the bottom of the pecking order and has always been sketchy, skinny and fast because of it. We love her dearly though, (she has such a personality) and she is very ill. I have not witnessed her eat or drink in a few days. She has had Tylan 50 injections for 4 days now and she is no better. She vomits everytime we catch her and there is a lot of yellowish fluid, but nothing else. She is lethargic, but will still put up a fight when we try to catch her. She stands fine. I checked her vent and see no signs of and critters. I have not seen her poop in a couple of days so I can't check a stool sample. I have checked her crop for grit, but it is empty. None of the other girls exhibit and problems whatsoever. Please help if you have any suggestions. Is it worth trying to force some electrolyte fluids down her. I am afraid she will just throw them back up. If I should do that, how do you force feed a chicken?
