I'm hoping to get faster responses here than on the facebook 101 group. I lost a chicken over last night. 2 days ago she didn't come out of the coop, brought her inside, she perked up after a night, then slipped into nothing within a couple hours. Discovered lice on her, but otherwise no idea what could have done it. I suspect Cocci, and the lice just drained whatever she had left. Now I'm seeing the family favorite, panting unnecessarily, her wings are dropping, and she's using them to stay balanced when sitting down. Picked her up and she's also feeling really skinny, but she looks like she's been eating and drinking fine. I started Corid today due to the million things I tried to do with little Nugget who passed, but I see that something's not right. I hate to isolate her from the group (now only 3), but it looks like that's going to be best. What should I start feeding her while she still has an appetite? My husband is going to help me get some wood ash on her. I couldn't find any medicated dust at local stores, so I have to wait until amazon delivers some...but I did see the ash work quickly on our lost chick when I tried it last night. What is the best stuff to be getting into her body while she's still upright and alert? My kids will not handle Princess Buttercup's loss as well as they did little Nugget. She likes to sit on their laps and is easy to handle (though I noticed she was particularly sensitive and skittish the last couple days, but I assumed adolescence) Age: 3 months - the red sussex, the little black cochin was the one who passed. This was a couple weeks ago Please help.
