Thanks for checking up on them!! They are not remarkably better, but also not any worse! So far, no one else has come down with it as bad as those first two. Maybe they just took it the worst for one reason or another . Going to get more syringes this afternoon so I can give everyone else with a runny nose a shot of antibiotics. The smaller chick is still doing well, a little stuffy but doing well. I gave them both a good amount of VetRx under the wings and on the nostrils and roof of the mouth last night. All my easter egger babies are doing great, they are going on 2 weeks old now and we only lost one, I was super worried about them. If we lose anyone else I will update the thread.... hopefully the worst has passed?????
I see so many new threads in this forum every day listing the same symptoms as we are struggling with. Maybe that is normal for this forum, since I am new maybe I am just ignorant lol! I really wonder if anyone has had the money (that was my problem, I don't have the money right now and they need super fresh bodies!) and/or desire to send any of these birds off for testing to see what the heck it is that is making them sick. It sounds to me like there is something going around, and with the area that mine free range in, I'm starting to wonder if they didn't get it from a wild bird or something. I have seen a few canadian geese that have flown over the area recently, they usually spend the winter around here, my neighbors down the road have a group that stop every year and raise babies on their pond, I wonder if they could have transmitted some of this? Just speculation, as I am really struggling to understand where we could have gotten this, as everyone has been either new day old chicks, or in separate pens. Unless it was something highly contagious and I just tracked it around to everyone. It still worries me constantly and I think about it most of the day! it is driving me nuts!
