    Oh by the way I developed canker on the roof of my mouth this week! Doctor said it was from maybe burning it with hot coffee? Not! I was given an oral cream and amoxocillyn. I wonder if what I was given, is what she needs?
    I have not "sliced" it but have poked into it with pointed tweezers that are sharp it just comes off in tiny bits and constantly rolls away from tool it will not budge. When I grab onto it with hemostats it does not come out it just kinda breaks off where i pull at it, very tiny pieces. With all that mucus in there it seems she is developing a bit of respiratory infection? I am seriously thinking of dosing her with Baytril or Tylan? or some amoxocillian? I cant spell it lol
    Thanks

    I'd give her Baytril, and I'd also keep chipping away at it.

    I have got all the canker out and she began eating on her own. I tube fed her for a couple weeks. I have new problems with her
    She has gained quite a bit of weight back too. Ok let me list new symptoms

    1. Still can't see well or get balance very well. Been 5 days since removed huge canker mass. we thought it was maybe doing it. She staggers when walks some. Pecks in air until finds food bowl.

    2. Cant seem to remember how to drink properly. She rarely tips head back. She pecks in her water, when I can even get her interested. Have been tubing around 15 ml water (7ml at a time) a couple times a day.

    3. When she first got sick she smelled like she was dead very strong putrid smell. It went away while I was tube feeding her. It is coming back. She began to smell yesterday, not even near her mouth I can smell her about a foot away? Feeding her fresh feed, scratch and a bit of rice, with water like mush a few times a day. Poop looks a little dry but normal other than that.

    4. This is the worst and mainly why I'm writing. For 2 nights now She suddenly awoke from sleep screeching and flailing around in her (large) cage! Tonight it was worse more thrashing than first time. After I held her close and put towel around her she settled down. I swear I thought she died.

    Do chickens get night terrors? Do you think she has major brain damage? I am thinking she does. I just put my 17 year old cat down last week... I sure don't want to do it but I will, I am torn on what to do. She was getting perkier and better even though couldn't see well.
    Thanks Ladies for all your help
