i have been searching around on this site and am more overwhelmed and confused than ever with information, sometimes conflicting. i have one blue andalusian 1.5 yrs old who was acting very listless, not laying, not eating or drinking about a week ago. before that she was opening her mouth really wide and craning her neck. Her comb started turning blackish purple and still is. Her poop is yellow and bubbly/foamy. From info i got i thought probably worms. we isolated her treated her (and the other 18 chickens) for worms with wazine in the water. i'm sure they didn't get the full dose because they didn't drink all the water. should i do it again? like i said it has been a week. how long can the wazine water be left there? the directions say one day. is there another better more thorough or direct way to do this? i wanted to get flubenvet but can't get it here apparently. I gave her a concoction of ground pumpkin seeds, garlic, cayenne pepper, oregano oil and probiotics. she ate a little bit. she seems better now, drinking but not eating much. she still opens her mouth wide and cranes her neck sometimes. are there worms in her throat? we let her out in the yard and she pecks around and moves with more energy than before but she's still sick i think. she goes over to the fence and wants to go back in with her friends. meanwhile i have been dosing all their water with electrolytes, apple cider vinegar, oregano oil and vetRX. we cleaned out the whole coop and put fresh pine shavings on the floor and fresh hay in the nest boxes. I put cayenne pepper in their food because i heard its good to get rid of worms and they don't mind the spice but they really didn't finish eating it as fast as they usually do. so maybe they don't like it or i put too much. i don't know...and how often should i do that? now we have another hen who seems more sick than the first one. she is a buff orpington 1.5 yrs as well. at first i thought she was molting...weeks ago she started loosing feathers all over her body and looking really raggedy but acting totally normal. the last few days she started acting listless and weird just hiding her head under her wing and standing in the chicken yard. we checked her body for bugs and don't see any. i saw her poop yesterday...it shot out really liquidy and partly clear and it stinks worse than usual. i guess that is diarrhea. i got her to drink the vitamin water on her own. today we isolated her and she wouldn't take anything to eat or drink. we put the electrolyte water with the acv and oregano and vetRX in it in an eyedropper and shot it in her mouth. a few droppers worth but we don't know how much. and we don't really know what we are doing. i'm so sad and mortified that they r probably suffering and i'm doing all the wrong things because i can't figure out what's going on. just making stabs in the dark. i guess i better look up a vet.
