    I need everyone's advise and help...

    my chicken is sick...I have not gotten much sleep, as odd as that may sound, but she just happens to be my first and my favorite chicken. Stella has been sick since this weekend. Before I break out my hour long tale and more tears, I just need advise on how to give her the medicines I got from the feed and seed store!!! I have two i need to give her, and she's not letting me.

    If they are oral, wrap her a towel to restrict her movement. Get a friend or family member to hold her firm but gentle and draw the medication into a syringe. Then use your thumb and fore finger to open her beak and dose the medication.
