    [​IMG] My bantam brahma is sick, i think she might be too far gone. It started yesterday, when i noticed her crop looked big and all she did was drink water.I picked her up and she threw up a little. I gave scratch, wouldnt eat it. Just standing by the water drinking. Today i have been watching off and on, still no eating, only drinking. she also isnt doing too much. Tonight i went to close up for the night and she is breathing through her mouth, making small noises. Any thoughts?

    Quote:It isnt impacted, not hard. Soft but not gritty, just soft and large.

    Try this: Day One - Add Braggs Organic ACV with 'the mother in it' in her water - a tablespoon per gallon of water for a day and do not give her food. On the second day, feed her just yogurt while still giving her the water with ACV. On the third day, give scrambled egg, yogurt and ACV and water. I was told that this will help! Good luck!!
