Just a few questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I recently got chickens to show and my mom got laying hens. About 3 weeks ago I entered them in the fair. My Chickens were perfectly fine. But a kid had kicked up dirt in the barn by my chickens so my Delaware and 6 month old mix started sneezing. Obviously from dust being kicked up around them. But now back at home the same two hens are still sneezing and "coughing" not sure if chickens can cough or not. All of the other hens and my roster are perfectly healthy, no sneezing or coughing. Only these two. They have clear and yellow junk around their nose but they aren't "throwing up so to speak" any ideas on how to help them?

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

Unfortunately,  shows are a great place for bringing home illnesses, mites or lice etc.  I suggest you post in full detail at  "emergencies ,diseases, injuries, cures"  thread.

 

However, when you are OFFLINE, there is no way for someone to contact you.  I hope you have them quarantined from the rest of your flock.

x2 to what Drumstick Diva said.  When a bird leaves your residence, it is best to quarantine them for a month after their return to prevent transmitting anything back to the rest of your flock.  

 

I hope someone in the emergencies forum can recommend a treatment.  If not, do you have an avian vet nearby?  Has anyone else in your 4-H group had similar problems?
