In the Brooder
- Apr 27, 2014
I have a 7 month old LB that broke her wing two weeks ago and over a week later she started to decline. She seemed fine with her wrapped wing and was eating and drinking well. I noticed that she fell and could not get up on her own and then later she was knocked over onto her back and could not get up. I also noticed when I changed her wrap that her crop was empty and she was acting lethargic and also she was not standing well. I brought her in the house and have been giving her fluids, water, ACV, and Gatorade, She was eating from our hands and after a few hours perked up. Since then she has declined. I have started feeding her chick starter mixed with poultry electrolyte and vitamin water and also mix in some yogurt. I have to feed her by spoon and drop into her mouth. She now just lays there and wont get up and seems that her leg isn't very strong on the broken wing side, she lays on the other side with her feet out to the side. She has also pooped the most vile smelling green poop twice now. Is it possible she has an infection. Other that the broken wing she was fine. Any help would be appreciated. We really don't want to lose her!
