    I found this link this morning, passing it along for future: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/700526/flushes-for-aiding-in-toxin-removal
    I'd only do one of them, so I'd stick with the charcoal.
    Important concern with all of them is dehydration, so make sure she gets plenty of fluids.
    Also, with toxins, they all vary in how quickly they are absorbed from the digestive tract, so the sooner you treat obviously the better.
    With the charcoal you will likely see some black droppings, to be expected, until it's all passed through.
    Hope your bird is OK.
