    This may come in handy during syringe feeding, tube feeding or giving a chook medicine.

    This works on all breeds all ages.

    This does not hurt the chicken.

    I tried that with mine because I wanted to give her water in a syringe, but when I got to the third step, she shook her head side to side and wouldn't hold her mouth open. Do you know how I can stop this?

    Thank you,
    Demi

    If you can get someone else to give her the water while you hold her still that should work.

    ( we had to do this for a very powerful gold laced Wyandotte we have)
