    I have a young hen that was laying on her side when I went out to feed the flock this morning, I brought her in she felt thin I gave her antibiotics and wormer and kept her warm. 2 hours later she was up eating and drinking. Now 12 hours later she is still eating but if I lay her on her side she cannot recover and right herself. If I put her on her feet she seemed ok. Does anyone have any insight here? Thank you

    This product is a very good thing to have on hand. its electrolytes that you can find at your local family center, Tractor supply Co., those type of places. It helps them stay energized. Good luck!
