Just wanted to post a picture of my latest patient, our Silky, Aretha. In the picture to the left, she is not doing so well. She had stopped eating but was always very alert (my other chicken, Nancy Sinatra, was completely out of it, never even opening her eyes). As soon as she would not accept food, we began with the almond milk/drench mixture. I have not been staying on top of her treatment so she has taken a little longer to get better, but today she was out in the yard, freaking out because her man, Franklin, was on the other side of the fence and she couldn't get to him.
I don't know if you can tell in the picture above, but her face is still swollen. However, she is not gurgling anymore and she is acting completely normal (she attacked the dog and 2 goats). We will still bring her in and keep her in her tub at night for a few more days and keep her separated from the rest of the flock until she is symptom free for a couple days.
