important do not mix probiotics and antibiotics
When your chicken starts to gets ill its important to treat anything fast. Once a chicken is ill enough to lay on her side the outcome does not look good.

I gladly donate my time to help chicken owners in need. So if you have a sick chicken please:
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
