    I'm sorry I don't have advice but hopefully someone will chime in soon... How is she now? Are you sure the fowl pox is completly gone..
    Maybe some vitamins and electrolytes , if you haven't tried already .
    Best of luck ...

    How much weight has she lost? Is she in an 80-85 degree room? She needs to be warm and probably have sugar water tubed. Once hydrated, she probably needs tube feeding. Get her warmed up and she how she looks.
