    OMG this stuff smells so bad. Was able to dropper it into each of their mouths but holy crap it smells! I've washed my hands 10 times and the smell is still there. It's a good thing I love my babies!

    I give Nutri drench on a weekly basis unless I am supporting them during molt, it won't hurt them to have it daily for a week. then taper down to a couple days a week then 1X a week.

    Sometime green poop other than eating something green can mean they aren't eating, can you tell if she has a good appetite ?pick her up so you can tell if she is in good weight?

    This has some very good info https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...mergency-and-supportive-care-updated-1-3-2016

    We've definitely seen her eating and drinking. Havent given her anything green to eat other than whatever grass she chooses to munch on
