    This morning I went out side and I found my 4 month old keet just sitting on the ground with her eyes closed and not wanting to move. When I picked her up she puked on me. I used a dropper and put some save-a-chick in her (electrolytes). What should I do?!?!?

    That`s a tough one, Ashley. She musta ate something really bad. Mollasses is a natural laxative for fowl. I think I would mix up a little in some water to look like weak tea and dip her beak in it 4-5 times to get some in her. Whatever doesn`t come out when she pukes has to go through and this will help. Hope she makes it..........Pop

    Quote:Yes, it feels like it is full of liquid. When I held her and felt it and rubbed it she puked again. What does this mean? Should I rubbed it and try to get it all out??

    She isn't doing good. Looks like shes about to die. She is having trouble breathing and she is shaking.
