How long can she last if she won't eat? My poor hen is still not wanting to eat. She was injured Monday. I have been trying to make her drink several times a day, and she will usually drink some... She will not eat anything. I have been putting yogurt or cream of wheat on her beak and she will eat what little bits stay on it. I can get perhaps a teaspoon into her twice a day. I have tried putting another chicken with her (non-aggressive ones, of course) , and for a short while today put her in a crate in a protected area of the free range. She is not at all interested in company, preferring just to lie alone. Her wounds are healing up, but she is not weight bearing on one leg. I can't find any injury to that leg or to the flesh above it so I am wondering if it's a soft tissue injury? I just hate seeing her feel so bad. Am considering putting her in a sling so she can be up.
