    Hope the ER folks will be able to help you. Unless she truly has worms, wormer isn't going to help her.

    Welcome. Sorry to hear about you're sick hen. I don't really have a clue as to what's wrong, but it doesn't sound like worms. Actually, it is not a good idea to worm a sick animal, unless you know for sure it's worms that are causing the problem. Hope you get it resolved soon.
