Need Advice - Crusty nostril

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi. I have a Bantuam hen who is about 7.5 years old. I noticed this morning that she has a crusty lump in her right nostril. I am having trouble finding a vet for a chicken so I am wondering if anyone has any advice on what I can do to help Polly or if it is something that is worse than I hope it is. We've had Polly and our other chicken for a little over a year and have not seen this before. Thanksfor any assistance.

Have you tried getting it out?

It could be feed that has become like concrete stuck in her nose. Nasal canker could also be the problem, but I would work on doing warm saline soaks to her nostril for 10 minutes. Then carefully take a QTip drenched with hydrogen peroxide, and wet the obstruction a few times to soften the crud. Then take a tooth pick and try to clean out the obstruction. You make have to do this a couple of times. Here are a couple of threads with a similar problem:
