    Can you post a picture? Are you sure what you're seeing/feeling isn't a full crop?

    Did she get chilled or tip over in the water? I would bring her in the house and put a light on her to keep her warm. Put some electrolites in her water and continue to try and get her to eat. Good luck I hope she gets better.

    Yes she did tip over in the water. Can she recover from this? What should I feed her? & should I give her pedialite & baby food?

    I would just keep her warm and hydrated pedalite would be fine. She maybe in shock. Good luck.

    Can I give her ensure? & should I get a medicine dropper to force feed her?

    I wouldn't try the ensure. The medicene dropper you have to be so careful of not getting the liquid in their lungs. I would not force feed or use the medicene dropper. She needs a quiet warm spot.
