    Welcome to the forum....sorry it is on a sad note. You can try an Epsom salt flush or molasses flush.
    Keep her warm and in a seperate area. Try mixing some poultry vitamins or gadorade and using a syringe with needle inject some under her loose skin over her shoulders...it should make a bubble under the skin. It depends on how much she might have injested and how it affects her liver and organs as to if she can pull through. You can mix a chick crumble with water into a oatmeal type texture and try springing into her mouth.... Just not anything watery as she could aspirate on it.
