Crackle?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i, I'm new to the chicken business but I absolutely adore mine! My beautiful daisy has been sneezing (I think) and I just went out to the garden (she's asleep) and she's crackling. Sounds like a chest infection/cough in humans. What can I give her, I love her to bits and hate to think of her struggling. Thanks in advance x

Has your hen improved any over the past day or two???  Or is her chest still rattling??  Any other signs?

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.

You might consider treating her with Tylan 50 (you can do a search on it).  It typically helps with respiratory illnesses.  I don't know if that's what your girl has, but it won't hurt to try treating, just in case.  Sometimes it's a process of elimination when it comes to treating chicken issues.  I've only ever given it as in injection (could use a 22 gauge needle, or even insulin needles if you have access).  You could give 1/2 cc into her breast muscle for three days, alternating breasts for each injection.  Tractor Supply and other farm type stores generally sell small syringes and needles of various gauges...and Tylan 50.
