So far so good with my chicks out in the barn. The only negative is that my premier 1 heating plate burns the chick's a little. It just happens to the ones that don't have feathers on their back. A few of them have little burns on the wings where they press against the plate, and a little spot on their back. I keep hoping their feathers hurry up so it protects them from that.
Hi SleepOwl, I would perhaps change out the heat place for a heating pad that you can turn off the automatic shut off if possible, I ordered some from sunbeam. I got the idea off of the mama heating pad thread in the mean time, put something, a pillow case, or towel or something between them and the heating plate, and elevate it so it cannot touch them?

Phew! Glad its done. Its almost 9:30 and I am going to get dressed. LOL, I was out to the coop to turn on the lights in my pj's this morning. Kind of
reminded me of you, fellow group members. Never thought there would be a day I would do that.
Dress, walk the dogs, eye appointment for the cataract and then dinner. That will wipe out almost the entire day. Read ya tonight (I bet there will be
ten pages of script)
Wow, you are busy! Hahaha, we all end up out there in our PJ's at one time or another!

After two treatments of pour-on that should have taken care of mites or lice. For sure. There are though those that do not respond to medications and my fingers are crossed that that is it.
It is an odd case. I know there are a few eye issues related to respiratory disorders. Vet Rx has oil of oregano in it. $6 bottle and is a good thing to have on hand. It's sort of a naturaly remedy cure all and I wonder if she would find some relief with it. In the mean time with the oral clindamycin I'd do topical neosporin around the eyes after cool water cleanings. That's just my thoughts. And what I may try to do.
Great advice BC.
Yes, vet RX is good. the Ramsey feed guy has it, he may also have an idea of what it is, or may have something that can help. Also, if you want to go this route, the Vet at All Pets in Zimmerman is fantastic and he does see chickens... Not sure how much money you want to spend though.
