    One more question: I want to be careful and handle chicken properly so not to stress it anymore than necessary. How best to hold chicken when trying to give baby vitamin or yogurt, etc. Hen is not eating, but when picking up it's not happy. Also I read here that green water poop may signify that it might need hydrating. How best to introduce fluid with electrolyte. Also read that must be careful in opening beak and putting in fluid lest it goes into lungs. Lot to learn.
    Thanks again.
