Disclaimer I understand that by reading and learning information from this website or any connecting links, phone calls and texts that Blue Star Ranch is NOT practicing medicine. We are NOT licensed vets nor do we treat poultry. If you have questions about your chickens health
1) Read Our Web Pages or 2) Call Your Vet
Understand that chickens outside are walking on the ground and can pick up disease from birds that fly overhead or winds that blow bacteria. Be sure to use safe health practices when handling your chickens. ALL Vets will say that your chickens are carriers of bacteria of one type of another. Its TRUE all chickens carry LOTS of bacteria! Many kinds.
If You Have An Ill Chicken
Put her in a cage or crate and make sure that she is warm. Wrap a towel around her if she seems stressed. Keep her in quiet location
She needs to stand up and walk at least once in 24 hours
Keep her away from other chickens
Look for any injuries
Try to see if she will eat food or drink anything
My suggestion: If your chicken is sick call your own vet OR what I use is garlic and turmeric added to water and a real good poultry probiotic spray or powder for liquid.
Look at: using Borax to destroy Mycoplasma. in the coop
Use good probiotics spray in water and the coop area to kill bad bacteria.
