In the Brooder
- Sep 19, 2013
I have a 20 week old CA white chicken who is sick. who hasn't started laying yet. She is weak, she is eating and drinking very little, she has normal poo. She tries to walk but falls over a lot. she lays down a lot too. Her breast bone is sticking out too. I think from losing weight. I think she may have worms. I have checked vent and her crop and for bugs and it doesn't seem to be any of those that is the problem. but I could be wrong. I'm a new chick mama. Only going by what I have read on BYC and other forums. I need to get her to eat more. any suggestions? I have read about feeding her yogurt, oats and scrambled eggs. is that right? I got some safeguard yesterday to treat her for worms. How can I get her to eat? do I feed her or give it to her and let her eat it. ? I have her separated from the others, I have 8 total . 4 CA whites and 4 RIR. I have 3 kids and I know how to nurse them back to health but this chicken I don't have a clue. help please.
