    I pulled my hen out of her flock about 8 days ago due to lethargy, puffed feathers, white feces dried on her tail feathers and seperation. Gave her 6 days of antibiotics and she has her energy back but hasnt laid an egg for 8 days at least and is not eating and drinking like I would like her to. I noticed yesterday that she is drooling a clear liquid from her beak also. Any ideas.

    I'm afraid I'm not much help on illnesses, so I'm giving your thread a bump.

    Good luck to you.

    Are you using duramicin? If so give it 7 days! The appetite should slowly return!
