    Please let me know if you have used one and know it is safe for emergency nutrients and energy for a very thin, emaciated bird

    Please help

    Thanks!

    The best thing for a sick bird, IMO, is egg yolk. It's essentially bird "baby food". ;)

    When I have an ill hen, I give her fresh clean water, cooked egg yolk, yogurt, and cooked oatmeal. Many a droopy hen have been fed that combo and perk up in a few days.

    It won't help with worms, or diseases, but can help with a molting hen, or one that is suffering from nutrient deficiency until her digestivecsystem can get back on track.

    How long has she been like this? Have you checked for worms?
