Does Wazine expire? And my buff Orpington was acting different today?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I got it last June and never used it. I didn't see a date on the bottle. Should I use it or buy a new one?

Also my buff opington seemed different today. She didn't come outside for a minute after I opened it up, and she seemed like slghtly off balance. She's moving her head more than usual too. (You know, the chicken head bop) Also, she wasnt running as much. But she's eating and everything. I don't know how to describe it, something just seemed off. Does it sound like anything?

I don't use Wazine so I don't know what it's shelf life is but I would think if you just bought it last summer it should be fine.

 

As far as your chicken, could be any one of many, many things or could be nothing at all.  Is she eating/drinking well?  Is she currently laying?  Getting along with flock mates ok?  Sometimes all you can do when symptoms are vague is make sure you've ruled out all the most common possibilities of illness such as mites/lice, internal parasites, or anything that could have been brought in by any new birds you've acquired.  You can also pick her up and check her over carefully, head to tail, look for any injuries, weight loss or gain, swelling or bloating and listen for any odd breathing noises.  If all your bases are covered and you come up with zip on a physical exam then just keep an eye on her in the next few days for any new developments.
