So... I've read multiple threads about how to tube feed chickens. I have the supplies... but- when to start it? This is day two after the coon massacre. It killed 3/5 chick's and one of the mamas. This is the other mama. Pretty positive she is blind in the one eye she has left. I have given her approx. 30cc of water twice a day (I work, I'm sorry ) and she is still with us. Today she had a decent poop. But I know she is not eating or drinking. I want to keep her alive because she was my first chicken, but mostly because my chick's are 3 1/2 weeks old and need their mama still. I know I can give antibiotics and all that but my real question is how long before I put her (and myself) through tube feeding. I'm sure a blind chicken can adapt, if they are strong. She's almost 4 years old. Is it humane?
