Sick chicken! Help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This chicken is an Isbar that is only a few months old. My hens hatched her(I think) out along with some other chicks so she has lived in the coop with the other chickens since birth. Just yesterday I found one of her fellow hatch mates dead. It made me very sad, she didn't show any symptoms. Today I noticed this girl showing signs of illness. She's lost weight, her eyes are goopy and there is pink around them, I don't think she's eating, and she is lethargic. I separated her from the other chickens and have her in the house. Does anyone have an idea about what this could be? What should I do?

It may be a respiratory disease, so I would get some Tylan 50. injectable with syringes and 20 gauge needles. Give her 1/2 ml orally or as an injection once or twice daily for 3-5 days. If she is over 5 lb, yoj can give 1 ml. I would also refrigerate the dead hen, and send her boday to the state vet for a necropsy to find out the cause of death.
