    She's an ex bat, have had her for 4 weeks, today I found her hunched up in the coop, not eating or drinking, puffing up her feathers, shaky on her feet but still standing, eyes closed, very runny diarrhoea. Have taken her inside, given her layers mash, ACV water, mealworm and eggshell scrambled eggs, checked if she was egg bound which she isn't, her crop is 'beanbag like' but not very full....any other ideas?? She's one of the sickest ex bats we rescued this time.

    She's been wormed and de-liced.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here but I'm sorry it's not under better circumstances. How is your ex batt hen now as I see you posted this 2 days ago?

    Hi there, it was a bit of a rushed join up due to desperation but I'm glad I did. Good news, she's greatly improved!! :)A few days inside away from the others, crop massage etc and she's doing really well, thank you for asking. :)[​IMG]
