    I don't know what is wrong with her... she was just fine. now she's all laying there and her neck is moving all over and her eyes are shut.

    She just ate a bunch of japanese beetles... did she eat too many? is she going to die?

    please help!!! what can I do to help her, she looks like she's going to die... please help!

    she's stretching her neck out all weird all over the place real slow and around in circles like...

    if she ate too much you can massage crop and offer some olive oil to help stuff pass? Japanese Beetles sound like they would hurt! maybe she is trying to swallow?

    maybe she's got one stuck in her throat she can't get worked down into the crop. Try a little olive or veg. oil and see if it helps. [​IMG]

    Less than a teaspoon of water with a drop of olive oil dribbled down her throat thru a baby med dropper may help.

    she won't drink and I can't seem to get the dropper in her mouth.

    she stopped thrashing her head and her eyes are open and she's squeeking, but she's still very lethargic.

    now what do I do"? I have her ina box.

    You may need an extra hand, if you place your fingernail between her beaks she'll open it and you can gently drip some down.

    OK! well she still won't drink anything... but she's up and walking around and jumping and scratching!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    she ate some dirt, so I hope that will help her digest the beetles!



    She's looking 100x's better. my kids prayed for her and after they did that she was cheeping and her eyes were open. now she's running around. she just went in the coop for the night.
