    That sounds fine to use in her water.

    Another question. I cannot seem to find her crop ever. Even if she eats and drinks.

    And, she is not wanting to eat this morning. I have her outside and all she wants is grass. Is that okay?

    What I don't think it has is amino acids. And since it is mixed with salt, potassium and such I probably wouldn't "extra" dose a bird with it... where as the other supplements suggest I can give an extra drop directly to the beak. But with every thread, I continue to learn more things. Thank you for sharing.

    That is not what is causing this issue... and as far as I can tell you are not to blame. :hugs

    Love the pic of her when she was feeling better! :love

    Come on Ranger! :fl:fl

    I am not having any luck finding the NutriDrench. Is the rooster booster stuff any better than my Vi-Tal?

    The one you have is good to use, just get her to drink the water. Both have vitamins and electrolytes. The NutriDrench is just a quick fix, but she needs to drink water as well. Try to find the crop on your other chickens. It is in their upper right chest. Here is the NutriDrench ingredients:

    Found PC. If it isn't any better I won't get it. They do have liquid amino acids. It says cattle and horses though

    Poultry Cell is good for all animals and poultry. Dosage is 1 ml for every 3 pounds up to 3 ml maximum. I think both PC and PND are very good to have around. The only difference is that PC has riboflavin or B2 which for some treating baby chicks with leg problems is better to use. For some reason PND has no riboflavin.

    Okay. What I have on hand at this point is:

    Vi-Tal currently in her water
    Vitamin E gel caps if 400ui
    Vitamin B1 tablets
    Feather Fixer pellets
    Layer pellets
    Plain sunflower kernels
    Poly-vi-sol without iron
    Rooster Booster Poultry Cell(will have this afternoon).

    What would you give her, when, how often and how much?

    This morning all she would eat was cracked corn and grass when she is outside surrounded by her flock mates. I gave her enough cracked corn to put the vitamin E gel contents on. I have not been giving her those lately because of the vi-Vi-, but should I be continuing with both?

    She is having issues this morning and keeps trying to back up till she flips over. I saw a little blood so I picked her up and held her on her back(she injured her toe nail). She was so relaxed and just stretched out...but then she was looking all over. Her neck looks right side up when she is upside down.

    If this is Mareks, is there a point where she won't be able to recover from.
