I have a phoenix chicken, probably about 5 months old. A couple of months ago she acted like she had toxins in her system and was very near death. But she pulled through. Then about 2 months later she got sick again (not free ranging anymore in my backyard at this time) so we thought it was toxins being released and working their way through. Just when I thought she was better she went lame. It's been a week that her right leg hasn't been working. And now she's stuck laying on her side and can't get up. I feel badly making her suffer like this and I'm wondering how long does one wait before they euthenize? Is there a chance she'll recover from this? I feel so badly for her. She's not really eating or drinking anymore. I was tube feeding her but I'm afraid that doing this is just prolonging it for her.
