    Hello to all, I'm Tristan I live in Philippines, I'm new in this forum and I joined this forum to know some advice. Well I have a pet chicken that is a broiler, I don't want to dissect for food my chicken because I want to him to be my pet. Before March ends my chicken has a problem, he is sick and I think he has a cold or something,then the next day he can't walk and dosen't eat(When he is still not sick he always hungers for food and stuggle to his house just to get out and eat the food outside his house) so I helped him to eat but he only eats few and later on he sleeps. My chicken can't walk,eat on himself and heavily breathing. I really need some advice and I don't want him to die [​IMG] . I don't know what to do because I'm just a 15 year old kid. Please reply so I know what will I do.I tried to let him take a medicine that is only for colds of humans not animals but it is still not working. I'm sorry a have a bad pronunciation because english is not our language here is Phlippines.hahaha

    please help my chicken! [​IMG]

    It's a rooster or a hen? If it's a rooster, do you have fruit on the ground he can eat?

    Hmm. as said before, broilers are genetically modified so that they get fat quick, then die off (for best meat and all)
    [​IMG] sorry!

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. So glad you joined. Sorry it has to be under these circumstance. Besides the fact he is a broiler, chickens are also a flock animals. He is lonely and needs a friend. Give him some vitamins and electrolytes in his water. Good luck. [​IMG]
