    Have a white leghorn who is very listless and slow. She is not eating a great deal but is drinking. Sitting down a lot. Cannot source antibiotics from fodder store anymore so was wondering if there is an alternative antibiotic to give to her in case she has disease of some sort. Have dusted her for mites. Any help would be appreciated

    How long has she been exhibiting these symptoms? How old is she? Is she laying? What type of feed is she on? (though she doesn't appear to be eating it.)

    as been like it for a few days now. She is about 2yrs i think. Got her from a guy who didnt want her and was not really looking after her. I have had her for about 6 months and she has been fine. She is not laying and i have been feeling her to see if she is eggbound but cant feel anything hard inside. She is on a mix of pellets and seed. This morning i gave her cereal and yogurt and she loved it. Have been syringing yougurt and garlic oil in her for a day now. Frustrated that i cant fix her
