    Hi I gave a sick chicken. She is only drinking if I syringe it into her. Her poos are green pale yellow liquid. I started her on tetracycline. Thus chicken is blind we think partially. She can't see well. She hasn't really eaten much since three days ago ate an egg. What else can I do. Please help. Her comb us very pale but not blue.nshe still tries talking to us.

    Sorry about your chicken. How old is she? Do her eyes look normal or is one or both discolored, and are both pupils round? I would give her electrolyte water with vitamins (SaveACick) or other brands. Dip her beak or hold it under her beak. Have you had any symptoms of coccidiosis in your flock (lethargy, puffing up or hunching, poor appetite, diarrhea, ruffled feathers?) Coccidiosis is treated with Corid (amprollium) in the water for 5 days. Check her all over for signs of mites or lice. Has she been wormed recently?
