Im worried about her though, she eats and drinks and does lift her head but most of the time she stands with it tucked
She doesn't seem weak

Where would I get them ? Are they just ones like people would take
And yes I would love advice
The last ones I just got are from Walmart, much easier to cut and squeeze lol. Spring Valley 450 mg soft capsules. Per my chicken vet book you cannot overdose them on vitamin e just so you know that in advance.
This is what I have been doing and he is getting better.
4 soft gel vitamin e, I take a small nail sissor and snip them open squeeze them in a shallow medicine cup. I purchased Enfomil Poly-Vi-Sol (without iron) and add 6 drops to the vitamin e. I mix in something (spaghetti o juice, applesauce) to thin it out a little and make it more palletable. I place him/her between my legs and he basically drinks it from the cup. Get some sunflower seeds, that really helped too. Just like a snack, but the value of what is in them works great!

Thank you so much I will pick some up tomorrow
I was sprinkling sage over her food before I could get out and get the Nutri drench which actually seemed to help a bit
Also found chicken treats that had dried veggies in it

Yes the nutri-drench will but she needs the vitamin e to actually recover. I saw a difference with the sunflower seeds. I put it in a small blender so easier for them to peck at.
