    I need some help! Our turken hen Ostritch can't walk and her egg hole is closed up and her skin is blue and on her bottom is caked up with poo.We washed her off and put her in cage by herself and she ate a little bit.We don't think she will make it through the night

    She's doing okay she made it through the night and I gave her some yogurt and she hasn't eaten it yet her poo is foamy and yellowish and she pooed again and it looked fine

    Sorry, I don't know anything about a turken hen Ostritch.
    So I'll tell ya what I'd try with a chicken. You already cleaned her bum and are keeping her separated and warm. I'd give her some avc in water and some yogurt mixed with her food. You can also give her some polivisol without Iron.
    Best of luck with her keep us posted on how she is doing.
