Update on "Please Help Chickie cant swallow"

    Lobzi Chillin' With My Peeps

    Im not sure she is out of the woods yet but for a while she would not lay down and was trying to sleep standing up. Finally she feels comfortable enough to lay down and sleep and she has been sleeping most of the afternoon. She would not eat the peanut oil bread and the only water intake was that which I forced by eye-dropper. She continues to beg for live mealworms so I have given her a few. I figure at least she gets some water from them and doesnt hesitate in swallowing them. Im not going to give her any corn kernels or anything dry for a while and see if she continues to improve. Thank you for you suggestions. I appreciate your interests in helping her.
