    How many eggs can you feed a sick hen per day? I have given her one egg so far with 4 drops polyvisol on it and she ate it all. How much more can she have today?

    Where I live.
    Eggs are full of nutrition so they are good for chickens who are sick and for chickens who are healthy. [​IMG]
