I found a hen after she spent 4 days and 3 nights at the Hotel Saab, tucked up behind the engine block. We managed to, after a lot of effort, get her unstuck and inside. Temperatures here have been in the negatives at night, and as far as I can tell, she's not had anything but some snow to drink, and no food. She's obviously distressed after the whole being stuck thing, then the nearly hour-long extrication, and has lost most of her weight, but seems to be doing remarkably well all considering. So far I've brought her inside, given her some water with a little sugar in it, scrambled eggs, pellets, and some naked juice- it's just pureed fruit and veggies with some wheat grass and spirulina. She gobbled down everything I put in front of her. Her bowel movements are nasty, watery and what you'd expect from a girl who hasn't eaten in days. I have noticed that she's not really on the fast track to pooping now that she's got food though. What do I need to do to get her back into shape? Just keep giving her extra treats? Are there things I should be looking for? I've had hens wander off, and come back, but never without access to some sort of food/water, and never with these temperatures. Also, she's got a bit of engine grease on her, but I'm worried she's too frail and infirm to handle the kind of bath that can get that off. Do I bathe her, and put her through a scrubbing and the stress of a bath, do I try and cover as much as I can with a saddle for a few days, THEN bathe her, or just leave it be? I don't really want her preening and cleaning that with her mouth, she's got enough problems right now.
