Hello from Vermont!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have 6 Rhode Island Reds that are 1.5 years old. They've all been laying since 17 weeks and I've gotten at least an egg a day from each hen since. Today I went out to do a deep clean of the coop and one hen is wheezing. I've been reading about respiratory illness and worms. How do I know what to treat?

Ok. If I treat with antibiotics, do I isolate the wheezing hen? Any ideas where to put her? Or do I add med to water for all to drink? Do I dispose of eggs for that week? Should I post this in another forum?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi, welcome to BYC!

 

You'll need to isolate her from the other birds so whatever she has, they don't get. Or so they won't bother her while she's ill.

 

Put a post on the emergencies/diseases forum explaining all her symptoms, is she eating/pooping/walking around...everything you can think of that will give the experts over there a way of figuring out what's going on. Here's a link to take you there:

I hope your girl will be well soon!

Welcome to BYC !

Hello,

 My name is Steven. I have been raising Chickens and other birds for about 2 years now. I will say it is really fun and addictive. I really enjoy incubating eggs and watching them grow into beautiful birds.

 

I am currently looking to buy or trade for some Ancona Chickens if you have some for sale please let me know.
