    Separate her from the other chickens in case she is contageous. She looks too weak to try deworming her. Make sure she had water and food and try to give her a little plain yogurt with active cultures. I mix my yogurt with a crushed sweetened breakfast cereal (not a fiber rich cereal) to make it more appealing. Best of luck.

    what kinda cereal ? she is not eating the yogurt.i have now seperated her from the others .
     
  8. Hard boiled egg is good too.
    How is her crop? Hard? Soft? Empty?
    Have you checked for mites?
    What have you been feeding her( her normal feed)?
    In the meantime, get electrolytes and vitamins in her water. Make sure she stays hydrated.
    Is she laying for you yet?
    Have you gotten consistent eggs (everyday)?
    I will see if I can get another BYCer on here to post too!
    I learned a lot from dlhunicorn!

  10. Mix them in her water according to package directions.
    You mix it like you would if you were to mix, say cool-aid.
    Dissolve and stir well
