So I have a sick chicken. She's been off for days now. Listless, not reacting, eating very little, and very bizarrely, throwing up. Every time I pick her up to examine her (I have no idea what I am looking for), liquid comes out of her mouth. Kind of like I am squeezing it out. Sorry, gross.
I don't really think I can take her to the vet, unless she needs to be put down. I have googled "chickens throwing up" and have read everything from massaging the croup to get the gunk out, to syringing her with a garlic infusion. I am very squeamish and am not sure how I might go at either of these things, unless I really knew it was the right thing to do.
Do any of you have any ideas?
