So I have some lovely rescued meaties, cornish x, hens. 3 of them to be exact. I have been trying to get them comfortable and I am sure they are mentally happy. Here's what I've done so far.... Feeding a light diet, I think, of a small amount of medicated chick starter, romaine lettuce, ricotta and shredded cheddar, olive oil, and tomatoes, and water with a Tums and poly-vi-sol. Did this for the first 2 days. Gave them grower feed tonight as a way to add something more solid to their diet. They are clean and happy. They have an area of shavings and most of their little triage area is straw. Only issue, at this point is the god-awful smelling poo. Its basically a runny tan with lots of water. Just as an added tidbit of info....not ONE of the cages that had the birds had any water. All waterers were empty and filthy. Perhaps they are drinking alot now that they have free access to water and this is why there is so much water in their poo.... These gals will be kept until they die of natural causes. What can I do to keep them healthy and at a more manageable weight. The goal is to not have them as huge meaties, but as happy hens.
