Please help! she is about 7 months old. Oh! and i have two little kids who are with the chickens all the time..... could they get sick?

Chickens DO NOT get colds. They get viral diseases and NO your children will not catch these respiratory diseases.

You can do a search on here for respiratory diesease.


I always thought that this site was a good start:

does it sound like they have a cold, because if it does they have a resporty disease and it can be treated with tytmicen -10 ( can be got at most feed stores) one teaspoon to ever gallon of water , change every day for ten days, need to separete  from flock or it will spread to rest of birds, if it has not all ready

peace is when I am round my chickens, because they don't talk back, just cluck      help the chickens take over the world, and vote foghorn leghorn for presdent

When you search and see other posts on respiratory dieseases you will find that antibiotics are not necessarilly the answer. All you will be treating is the secondary infections which are cuase by bacterium. The primary infection, the wheezing, the coughing, the running nose etc. it USUALLY caused by a virus for which ANY anitbiotic is a worthless treatment.

PLEASE do research, educate yourselves and understand your chickens health.  Google searches and this site searches are a great way to learn an find out how to treat your birds.
