    What is the ratio of asprin to water for chickens? Will it hurt if chickens who dont need it drink some? How much is too much? Do you need to use baby asprin?

    My 11 month old barred rock is hurting and I can't find the 'recipe' for asprin water to help him feel better. Any ideas on why a chicken's leg and foot swell up with no apparent wound? I'm thinking maybe he hurt it in a fight, his tendon maybe?

    Any input at all would be great!

    Great, Thanks! First thing in the morning I'll get some medicine in Ranger and look into putting him into a chicken sling. It will depend on how well he's getting around.
