    Thank you very much for your help. I tried but failed so phoned the university of Glasgow vet school, there was nothing they could do either but by miracle she hasn't even stopped laying never mind getting ill!
    Again, thank you for your advice

    If you can get activated charcoal make a paste with a small amount of flour just a sprinkle and water. Do you know how to syringe it to her ?With her beak open and level or a bit down and not with head and neck extended okay. It will absorb the poison. You can get both at the pharmacy charcoal and an oral syringe.
