Our sweet little Sheldon is acting very sick. He has even vomited several times. He was still in the brooder with the 3 hens he's been with since birth. Two of them are Wyandottes (1 silver-laced, 1 gold-laced), so are very large and bossy, the other is a partridge cochin bantam pullet. There has never been much fighting among them, but of course, there is pecking order. Shelly is #4 since about 10 days ago. He looked like he had a cataract on his right eye--turns out it was white pus, probably from a peck to the eye, and he isn't blind, the eye has healed fully. Unfortunately, Monday night he seemed listless and let us scoop him up without a fuss. He usually flaps like crazy and fusses, but not this time. He feels extremely thin, and I was thinking he might not have eaten well when he couldn't see on the right side--maybe Nugget and BokBok, the Wyandottes, had bullied him too much. We've had him separated from the girls, but he doesn't seem to want to eat much and his vomit is really just liquid, like bile. We really can not afford a vet, but I have no idea what to do for him. If we just keep him separated from the girls (which we need to do anyway, since they're 5 months now), and make sure he has food and water, should that be enough, or do we need to get some antibiotics or Nutri-drench, or something? My sweet hubby wants to hold him 24/7, but I think holding too much is a bad thing. btw-The other bantam is Booker. I said everyone else's name, so I thought I'd include hers, too. We're Garfield fans, so we have Booker and Sheldon. The silver-laced Wyandotte is Nugget (silver nugget, chicken nugget, you know!), and the gold is BokBok (simple enough). Anyway, any help for our sweet Shelly would be welcome. Thanks.
