Hi ! I have been keeping ex-bats for 3 yrs now and so far av been lucky with there health. I have just been given a silky bantom which was found in very poor health. The hen is very pale and appears to have anemia which i think is caused by the infestation of mites she has. The hen is falling over frequently also and is very quiet and lethargic. On the up side she is eating , drinking and her poo appears normal . So far i have kept her in a warm room with a bowl of water with antibiotics in it , she also has mixed corn and treats of scrambled egg , spinach and strawberries which she is eating. My concern is that i am being cruel keeping her alive but has a nurse my instinct is to try and save her . Any advice would be greatly appreciated .
