Foul pox? A type of CRD? I don't know... Please help! - Page 5

I won't be able to get any med. today, but I will try after I get home from school. I have called many tsc stores and none of them have Tylon 50, only Tylon 200 or 75. I think they might have Duramycin though. I will try to get it as soon as possible, just again the prices aren't that, lets say, cheap. I just put the girls to bed and they were okay, but I don't know if it's because of the heat or what that one didn't even eat her dinner. Do you think it could be because of the heat (I'm hoping and praying it is)? 

 

 

I can't find the weather for these past days but today was around 95 and yesterday 97. This past week has been mid eighties I think and we have been having high 70s all month.

 

I hope the sudden heat is the only problem in their odd behavior...:fl:bow

I don't think it is the heat, as I live in Fl. my buffs are doing well. I know exactly how you feel. I spent 200 on vet bills when my chick broke her leg. Hope they are better in the morning.

other things to do...call your cooperative extension agency to see what types of viral activity is in your area, call a couple of farm supply stores ,not tractor supply, to see what they might suggest and if there are any knowledgeable poultry people in your area who can check your birds out. I live in northwest Florida and there are a bunch of things going.around here... Fowl pox, respiratory things and west Nile as well as avian flu. My 20 hens are either molting or down with one illness or a couple. And some days they will appear to be getting.better then relapse. In the last three weeks we lost 4 birds in different flocks to wet fowl pox. They were older birds. , It is sad to go thru what you are going.thru. After years of keeping poultry We all have our experiences of illness, disease and predator wounds. Farm supply stores have a good supply of items and even our local Ace has a better selection than our tractor supply. I also use OXINE AH in my water to prevent illness. It is heartbreaking when you can't help your birds.

Thanks nwfl and Deise! :hugsMy girls have been better, no pus or anything like the wet foul pox. They have been laying continuously (which is a good sign), but yesterday one sneezed a few of times in the couple of hours that I was watching them. I'm just glad the worst is OVER (knock on wood).

Thank God! I'm so happy to hear that, I was wondering about your girls. I know how hard it is, and you obviously put a lot of love into your flock. Now you can enjoy your day.

Welcome to BYC. I would purchase some Vetericyn eye wash or eye gel to use in the eyes to help prevent a secondary bacterial infection of the eyes which can lead to blindness. Since pox is a virus, it really won't respond to treatment, it just has to run it's course over a couple of weeks. Vetericyn or iodine can be dabbed on scabs to help dries them out. Make sure she is eating and drinking well. Offer some egg and electrolytes in the water. fowl pox

Here is some info about pox:
