    My hen Red is now loosing color on her comb it is almost pink! I gave her yogurt mixed with some of her food this morning and she did finally eat. But I am worried because she now has a red splotch on her other leg. I also gave her 1/2cc. of pennacillin this morning. She is still panting... All I have as far as pain killers is an asprin powder that is origionally for horses.. What should I do? Please I need any suggestions that you might be able to give me.[​IMG]:fl

    If you have any electrolytes give her some. You could also substitute gatorade mix with some water or pedialyte ( I think people recomend without iron) I hope the Penicillin works. I wish I had some ideas about the cause of her symptoms. I hope she improves.

    Yogurt is good anytime but especially when on antibiotics.

    I'm concerned about the second red splotch. Has the first one drained at all? Have you cleaned it? Can you share a picture of how it looks now? I'm worried that it might have gotten into her bloodstream and has gone systemic. Keeping my fingers crossed that she pulls through!! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] This is my Red
    [​IMG] This is the origional red "bump or mark"
    [​IMG] This is her Left foot and the new red mark. She is acting more active and looking more alert since all I have been doing with her today. What do you think?
