My silver penciled cochin banty hen, Precious, is very lethargic. 1) What type of bird , age and weight. silver penciled cochin banty hen, approx. 2 years old, about 2.5 lbs 2) What is the behavior, exactly. lethargic, not eating or drinking, just laying down like she's too tired to stand 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? 1-2 days 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? no 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. just her right eye looks irritated and she pretty much keeps it closed 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. nothing 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. not eating or drinking except when I dribble water on her beak and put her beak in yogurt, then she has no choice but to eat it. she is not eating it but she has dishes of oatmeal, with crumbled hard boiled egg yolk and plain yogurt. also Layena pellets soaked to mush, scratch, grit 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. very little poo but from what I can see, normal 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Poly vi sol 3 drops in beak, dribbled pedialyte in beak, 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? I would love to treat myself as my chicken vet is about an hour away and we are having an ice storm right now, so going to the vet right now is out of the question but I would take her as soon as I am able 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use 8 x 12 coop, attached enclosed run (not using it right now due to crappy weather), pine shavings DLM I have some Tribrissen (Trimethoprim/Sulfadiazine) left over from December from the vet when another hen had a stuck egg issue (she's fine now). I've kept the meds in the fridge and the expiration date is march of 2013. Should I give her some of that? The original Rx said to give 1.2 ml 2X daily for ten days but it was for a standard size hen and Precious is well, precious and only about 2 1/2 lbs. Also the entire flock of 28 were treated for round worms with Wazine about 5 days ago.
