    My poor 1 year old New Hampshire has a fever. Her comb is much hotter than the rest and she is moving pretty slowly and her poop is more watery. I have antibiotics from the feed store which I am putting in her water and electrolytes. I am also giving her worm medication. Is there anything else I should be doing? I feel so bad for her [​IMG]

    Antibiotics plus worm medication is way too much on her system, especially when you don't even know if you're treating something that needs antibiotics. How do you know she has a fever? Chickens can have 103-106 or so and be normal.

    What speckled hen said. Please don't medicate until you know what you are medicating for.
