Patient: 1 yr old bearded silkie hen; very small, has only ever laid one tiny, tiny egg. Symptoms: Standing around, lethargic, not eating, cold feet, sticky rear end, shivering slightly when asleep, head tucked around to the left when she sleeps, sleeps standing up. Faeces are loose and have a trail of yellow stuff mixed in instead of a white peaky point on the end of a firm poo. Treatment to date: Relocated her to the laundry 2 days ago as the rooster was merciless in covering her and picking on her so much she was flat to the ground and didn't move when he got off her (I suspect she was scared to move and stayed still so as to attract less attention). Have given her 2x baths so far, wormed, powdered for lice and mites. Washed sticky rear end, got a LOT of poo off her. Ofered wheatgrass juice in a bowl and garlic juice (both of which she drank on day 1), yoghurt, Vigest (which is a vitamin and mineral tonic for animals with electrolytes), water, molasses, wheat. Feeding her something every hour through today as she is very weak and starting to lose ground. She hardly ate anything yesterday when I left her alon and observed her, so feel that I have to intervene today. About a week ago I liberally dusted the pens with supphur and garlic powder. I am wondering if she has injested the powder as she is so low to the ground? Any ideas anyone, or possible treatments?
