I have a 6 year old Ameracauna. She hasn't layed eggs for a couple years now. She has always been petite and not a super hungry girl. Recently she had diarrhea and was acting out of it. The bet gave her vitamin b, de wormer, pain relief and antibiotics. For a while she seemed better and was quite happy eating mealworms and sunflower seeds. I was trying to get her to put on some weight as she was underweight. She had sunflower seeds and/or mealworms stuck in her crop for 2 days. I got worried and took her to another vet. They could not see her but gave me Emeraid to treat her with. That moved the stuff out of her crop and she has been on it ever since (2 weeks). She is acting very normal, alert and looks great other than losing her beard, I don't know why. But, she has low interest in eating or drinking. She had previously been a very thirty hen. Now I see her doing a little yard pecking but I don't ever really feel anything in her crop, nor do I see her at the pellets or water bowl. If I stop forcing her Emeraid I fear she would die. I don't know what to do.
