My four week old chick went sick for seemingly no reason this week. She was laying on the floor unable to stand and burning up. I put her in a box lined with towels to get her away from her trampling sisters. I read that petalite can help hydrate and get the sugar up until they are able to eat again themselves. I had also heard that you can choke a chicken to death when trying to hydrate with an eye dropper. I figured she was on death's door and I should at least try something. Careful to administer the liquid to the side of the beak, I started the petalite treatments. To my surprise she seems to be turning a corner! This morning she had her head positioned near the feeder. She seems interested in food again but I've yet to see her take any. My question is what is a good, perhaps soft, irresistible food for a sick chicken? Any info is greatly appreciated! New chicken owner here!
