I only have 2 chicken: Rooster & Hen; Mr. Egbert & Pecker. Breed: Unknown Both 1 yr & 3 months old Pecker's weight feels the same; 3 lbs maybe Mr. Egbert is fine, it's my hen though. She can't eat/drink on her own or even groom her feathers. Two days ago, I decided to switch from their everyday (30% protein) pellets to scratch. My hen is such a fatty when it comes to food so I thought a variety of 3 different grains would make her happy. Now, the scratch was from a different store I wanted to try out (cheaper too). I opened the new bag and noticed these weird insects! They were as small as a black ant but some sort of beetle looking critters. I thought maybe the birds won't mind and find them to be tasty snacks. I poured just a handful with a scooper in their container so they can try it out. As usual she ran to the food and noticed it was different but tried it anyways. I realized there were too many of that insect in that bag and I freaked, it's like there was over a thousand of them! So I sealed the bag into another tightly to return it to the store. An hour later, my sister told me she saw Pecker puke and seemed dizzy. I went over to look and cleaned her beak, she had bits of Scratch grains in the roof of her beak. There was gooey saliva coming out too. She seemed weak, judging the way she was walking around as well. I also found one of those bugs attached to the roof of her mouth and got it out too. I switched the food back to pellets. -Now, for the past 2 days, all she does is sleep and try to do the usual (eat/drink/groom/PECK) except she can't. I have to clean her beak because food just gets soggy and stays at the tip because she can't close her beak normally. She doesn't have the strength to peck right now. She seems weak. One side inside of her mouth, bottom beak is a little bloated, and I could have sworn her crest was pinker! It seems a little bit purple near the crown tips The left side in her mouth, bottom beak, is pinker and a little swollen compared to the other side. The yellow stuff is baby food. I'll provide another picture if this one isn't helpful enough. -I have been feeding her Gerber baby food mango/pear/guava flavored and water with a dropper until her crop feels full. About 15 tsp of water and 7 1/2 tsp of baby food about every 2 hours. -The poop has been very runny since Monday. First it was mostly clear with some dark brown poop in the middle and some green then, the poops were mostly dark green poop with some white. Now today after I fed her, her poop has been mostly yellowy and a little dark brown poop in the middle, or mostly clear with little bits of green, or all clear and yellow, and back to mostly clear and some more dark green. -So my only treatment has been feeding her food & water every 2 hours (besides when it is sleepy time) so her crop stays full and not baggy. -Does anyone know of any vet in Miami? I don't know if a vet in Florida would help since I hear chicken are supposedly illegal to have here and now there are some new bird catchers that are from NY ??? -My house is their house for now before we move and they'll have more in a backyard. They are in a room in an open cage to roam in and out of. Inside the cage, there are shavings all over and Pecker lays her eggs once a day in a corner. Their food is in there too and outside of their cage is their water. I cover them up at night with big covers when it is sleepy time. So anyways I would like to know 2 things: 1. What juice/liquidy and slippery substance with enough protein is there to feed my hen? 2. Is there anything I can provide for her to decrease the swelling she has by her mouth so she can eat normally again? Maybe a natural medicine she can drink? Or ideas that are ok and safe to reduce that swelling? I am open to suggestions and things I should know. Next time I will always check before buying their food again I don't want to see a comment that doesn't HELP and/or answer my questions. Telling me to kill her won't help either.
