Well, first off, it's pretty terrible news. Yesterday, a chicken who had been having trouble with coordination and balancing on her left leg started having awful muscle spasms, flapping and kicking uncontrollably. Luckily I got her in to the vet, and she says that the most likely culprit is viral meningitis (judging by her overall body condition and previous health-- no signs of Newcastle or Marek's, thank god). The vet feels confident that if she can make it through a few days, she will start to recover. Currently, Turkey is on an anti-inflammatory and a supportive antibiotic. Getting electrolyte water into her is pretty easy with a syringe, but I'm really struggling to find a way to feed her that works. She keeps her neck contorted, but she can mostly straighten it out. It just seems to take a lot of effort for her. I know she needs food to help fight off this infection, but it makes it really difficult to feed her when she can't stand or lift her head by herself. Thus far I've tried: 1) plain yogurt in a syringe (not a long-term solution) 2) chick crumbles dry, out of my hand (can't tell how much she is eating, if at all) 3) moistened feed out of my hand (messier than dry and still can't see how much she eats!) 4) really wet feed out of a baby medication syringe with an enlarged opening (difficult, she resists having her mouth so wide open) Any suggestions on how to feed a chicken who can't eat unassisted?
