    She has lost an extreme amount of blood finally cleared her trechia and nasal of blood I think her crop is full of blood too. I think she is dying but bleeding stopped and she is breathing shallow and cant hold head up. Sigh I just wondered if a remedy to help her get blood out or anything I can do to save her? I didnt cut anything I will post picture of what came out later. didnt appear to be any blood vessels attached to it after it came out she started gushing blood from not sure where inside mouth i think crop or lungs anyhow sorry I am frantic. Sugar water shot anything might help her? thank you

    Sugar water is fine. Leave her somewhere dark, warm, and quiet.

    Sugar water into crop? Crop is very mushy- possibly blood plus I had just tube fed her a few hours prior. Should I hydrate her with water injection under skin? I have powdered electrolytes for water also but is type for a baby. I have her in sling next to my body right now, as i put her under cold water to bring her out of "shock" body temp is normal after blow drying her. She is sleeping now as it is night time here. Very raspy breathing and very weak. Should I hydrate now? (its been 2 hours since incident) or wait till she rests awhile? If I should hydrate please advise which method to use and whats best. Thank you all for your help. I am sorry for my frantic post, it was just an awful experience. I am calm and collected now :eek:)

    Can you pull the blood out of her crop with the feeding tube? That could start more bleeding though. If it won't come through just take the tube out and massage her crop. I would give her some Poultry Nutri-Drench or Poultry Cell 2-3 cc or ml daily, and some extra water with it. I hope you can save her after all the work you have done.

    I don't have either of those on hand right now my car isn't here either. Should I hydrate her with just some water under skin, is it crucial that I do it immediately or can I let her rest a few hours? So 2 or 3 ml straight water under skin? Skin at shoulders a good spot? thanks

    If you are going to hydrate her with water under the skin, I think it has to be sterile water....

    Bottled distilled water should be fairly sterile. Use an new sealed bottle. Boiled water is the only way(unless you have a distiller) to easily sterilize water at home. Just make sure it's covered so things don't get in while cooling.

    I think you also need to add a small amount of salt to the water. I Googled 'giving subcutaneous fluids to chickens'. This looked promising, BUT my computer is being a turd and wont let me open pdf files. So I couldn't read it to be sure.
