Ok, I posted last week on Thurs or Friday. My 6 month old Ameraucana was diagnosed by the vet with lice, she is now lice free. But, this hen is still lethargic, but I have upped my battle plan. I am now sharing what I'm doing, to just share and see if I get any other suggestions to help. I have made a slurry of sifted layer feed, only small little dust corn really, Odawalla Super Food Juice, Poly-Vi-Sol, cooked egg yolk, olive oil. I have taken to using a large syringe and am feeding her by force right now. (question: should I make sure she is also getting water? she won't drink on her own, I would need to syringe it down her gullet. And, the juice is liquid that is mixed into the slurry?) This morning her stomach was making some gurgle sounds, which I take as a good sign that she finally getting some food in her. I am not worried about the grit, as nothing going into her is even a little big, it can all be sucked up into the feeding syringe. She still inside in the cat crate with a heating pad on low. And, I am always surprised when I come home that she is still alive. Since this is among my first 3 chickens, I am trying to learn from her. She doesn't seem in any pain, just doesn't have any energy. The vet had said that he has seen birds get depressed from lice, maybe the depression and her weakened state just cycled... Anyway, I am feeding her and keeping her warm and clean. I am at one full week of a sick bird. Just seeing how this will play out and what I can learn to help all my present and future birds.
