ETA: New Question! How do I force feed her, more specifically, what do I feed (wet cat food and corn on the cob seem interesting to her, but she won't go ahead and eat), and How much? I have some syringes, and have been waiting, hoping she would start eating since she's been on Tribrissen since yesterday. But no such luck, she looks as if intersted, but won't actually eat ANYTHING. She is still drinking, but I'm afraid it's not enough, and I know she needs food. She is so skinny, I am giving her a little bit of wet cat food now, but I will be sitting with her when i get home from work for a while, and giving her a MEAL if she still won't eat. So, What do I give her that will nourish her, and how do I know how much? Thanks for any info! I forgot to add that from what I'm reading, if this is cocci, since bloody droppings appear on day 4, it would appear that today is day 6. From what I can find, it seems the death toll is highest on day 5? So I am hopeful that if she has made it this long, she is beginning the recovery phase and will pull through. I just want her to EAT! We will find out tomorrow the results of the fecal... Original Post: My 2 month old Brahma pullet "Salsa" started acting funny yesterday. She has always been very friendly, flies up to sit on my shoulder (or head, lol!) every time I come to see them, very talkative, etc. Yesterday I introduced them to their new coop, and when I first went to get them out of the room they had been in, I noticed she was lethargic and fluffed up. I picked her up and set her on my arm and she seemed slightly weak/unable to balance as well (just slightly, so I thought maybe I was imagining it). I took note, thinking perhaps it was the late-in-the day time, and that I was disrupting their getting sleepy. When I put them all in the coop, I noticed my little roo acting just like her, but not as noticable. This morning she is worse, fluffed up and looking ill, she was on her perch in the coop, the lowest one just a few inches off the ground--whereas she is usually up high on the edge of the tub they were in, or in the window sill (yes, we have had chickens amok in the basement, they grow faster than we build!) She had a couple of droppings underneath her, one of which was fresh: runny and a couple bubbles, with blood in a few places. Definite blood, not normal. I am trying to figure out how to upload a photo from my phone, I will get it up asap. The little Roo is also looking more like Salsa did yesterday, he is more puffed up and sleepy looking, and quiet. They have been outside to play several times, so could have been exposed to anything I suppose. I am so worried! I am new to chickens, and have no idea what to do. Can I buy something at the feed store, or am I going to have to take them to the vet? I am so scared they are going to get so bad and die, it would kill me! Please, anybody with experience have any ideas?
