I have had to feed my sick hen water and food a few times with a dropper. How much water and food should I be sure she consumes a day? Also, should I be giving her sugar water to help with energy? What is the ratio for sugar per water?

electrolyte soltion in her water would be better, not to concentrated, dip her beak in the water. not sure of the exact amount of food a hen needs each day but any food would be helpful for strenght. good luck

I did add them to her water but she is also on an antibiotic and not drinking much of either so I'm still doing the dropper thing. I'm hoping for her to perk up by tomorrow. Is it more important for her to stay hydrated than eat?
