One last idea and I'm culling if this doesn't work.

    I'm going to try one last thing. I don't want to type everything all over again so my story is about my chick and her feet. Please read my other posts for the info. I found Baytril from an older prescription for my cat. They are 22.7 mgs. I want to know if I could try this on my chick. She was born on July 3rd and her feet are a mess. If this doesn't work, I'm going to have her put to sleep.

    I have roughly 4 and a half pills.

    Never mind. My husband looked at her feet and made the decision. She can't go thru this anymore.

    Sorry for your loss. She must have had some kind of immune disorder, or at least something very uncommon, especially since none of the others had this.

    Yep, she is gone. My husband took care of it right after I left for work. I cried. I tried so hard with that little chicken:(
