    At first I thought she was just broody. She was in her nest all day. I noticed she crushed the egg she was sitting in so I kicked her out and cleaned it out. Her stool was runny as I lifted her out. She didn't move much after that and didn't eat treats when I tossed them to her. Note I did treat all the chickens and the coop with permethrin to treat lice. What else can I do for this poor girl?

    Probiotics for vent gleet.
    You need to replace the bad stuff with good bacteria and yeasts.
    I use Gro2Max powder but plain yogurt or kefir with active cultures can help.

    And should I separate her and spoil her any other way? I'm just nervous she won't eat!

    She looks really sick. Can you take her to a vet?

    Oh noo, I don't have a vet, but I'm sure I could find one. You don't think it's from the permethrin do you?

    Probitics would be great, but the title of this thread says she's not drinking. Can you bring her inside where it's warm?

    Yes, it is currently warm outside, but I can bring her inside the garage at the very least. I have it set up for chicks so I can get a chicken hospital put together in there. I have SCOBY I could feed her. Would that be too much? Ahh my poor baby! Thank you for helping!
