Ok, so here goes. Three years ago my golden comet River died from what I now know was internal laying. Late last year my hen Wolf of the same breed died as well, with the same symptoms (lethargy, not eating, sitting puffed up) now my favorite hen, Nyac, (also a comet) has been lethargic and just standing around. I can't bring her to the vet, and I am VERY upset at the thought of loosing her. I've heard the penicillin can help her at this early stage, as can VetRX. But can giving penicillin when she doesn't need it hurt her? And could I give it to her with VetRX? I don't want to make her more sick. Also what king of penicillin could I give her? PLEASE if you have any information, comment. I can't stand to loose another one of my flock.
