Glad to hear she's doing better smile.png. Just for future reference though I would refrain from giving her a bath. Bathing a sick bird can have serious consequences and is recipe for disaster.

Yeah, i ended up not doing it, because i couldn't find anything to bath her in, she was a lot bigger than i thought she was.

She just coughed a little bit of clear snot stuff up. Also, before it was only one hen that started pecking and chasing her, now they all do it,  it seems like they do it for no reason. They still let her lay next to them sometimes, but they bully her whenever they feel like it. She often ends up hiding by herself. What should I do? I have been giving her the duramycin with a syringe, i didn't want to separate her because i didn't want to disturb the pecking order. I had her separated for a few hours the day before and she was doing fine though. Maybe it is best just to separate her until she gets better and can stand up for herself?

How is your girl?

Sorry to hear she is being bullied. From what I understand, if she is still acting a bit off, the others will bully her. They see it as a "threat" to the safety and health of the flock. If it continues you may need to separate her. Then you would have to go through re-integration. I have read some people fix like a small area for the separated bird so the others can see her, but can't actually "get to her". This way she isn't so stressed with separation and hopefully they still see her as part of the flock. Don't know if that's possible, but a thought.

 She is doing better, i think it will take another week for her to be better completely. Today they weren't really bothering her. I think it will be okay becasue she is getting better quickly. Thanks for that idea though, My aunt actually has a large dog pen, im sure she will let me use it if i need to.

How did your bird do? Did she make a full recovery? I have a wheezing chicken and am just wondering which direction to head with treatment.
I'm creating Pleasant Row chickens: I'm starting with goals of cold hardy, dual purpose, and always bearded using Ameraucana, Crested Cream Legbar, Copper Marans, EE, Orpington, and Rock.
I'm also working toward improving the Cream Brabanter breed.

Well, she still sneezes everyday. She has been recovered from all other symptoms for a while now. The medications have not helped with her sneezing, i think she may have an allergy. She is also the only one not laying. I thought she had been sick with Infectious Bronchitis, but none of the others have gotten sick at all. So, yeah. I would say she is recovered, with an allergy, Or she is just as recovered as she can get.
