Green Poop in Chickens - sometimes there's hopeI have been dosing Holly with prescription liver medication twice per day for one week now. I am so happy to say that her poop is no longer vibrant green, she is eating regularly, stopped sleeping endlessly, started talking again and her colour is improving also.
I really feel that without the medication that she would have been emaciated or dead by this time. This seems to be the way, either the hen is taking great strides 3 or 4 days in or she has little hope.
I am now cutting it back to once a day and I will continue this for another week.
Holly is still really short on feathers and so will stay inside, on her heat pad and enjoying lots of fresh food. I will put her back with the other hens once her new feathers have really come in - about 3 weeks from now.
Here is Holly this evening. She still has a few weeks to go but I am really pleased with her progress. There is hope for chickens with liver failure issues.
