Please help me. I am desperate. My 16 month old chicken, chiclin, has been very ill. I've taken her to the vet and this is what I have found out. My chicken has meraks. She is showing signs of neuro meraks. Has anyone tried hypericum tablets? Does it actually work? Anyone know where to find how to syringe feed without drowning a chicken? I sent these questions to my vet but she has not responded. If anyone can offer ANY help at all I would be GREATLY appreciated. I would give anything to have my girl back to normal. 2) if the other two chickens are carriers of meraks they will be forever, even if I did give them a 30 day quarantine? Would it be best to find them a new home? 3) where I can find information on how to correctly syringe feed without accidentally drowning? 4) if she survives, she will be a carrier the rest of her life. Would it be best to keep her separated completely from other chickens? Or would it be okay for her to be with other carriers of meraks? Or could they be carriers of a different strain, vice versa so it wouldn't be a good idea? 5) is chiclins loss of balance due to the disease? Is there any way to help this? 6) would it be okay to give antibiotics? I read that meraks weakens the immune system. Is this permanent or only while the disease is not in remission?
