Oh girl, I am with you, I will trade you the runny nose.. I have no clue what is wrong either, So I don't even know how to treat him... 1st I thought heat stroke, then Wry Neck, then Star Gazing, Merak's, Clog in his throat. No mite, no ticks, no fleas. Eyes are green with full size pupils that react to light ( they get bigger and smaller, adjusting to the light change) Legs are not spread apart (Merak's sign.right leg forward, left leg paralyzed) He shivers a little, He can't stand up, shakes his head side to side, will extend it all the way out, then pull it all the way back, almost looks like if he turns his head any further he will twist it all the way around. He peeps, He tries to eat, I give him his liquids. What else can I tell you, his poops are normal in color, today he had 3 solids and one runny poo.. I keep him in my closet at night (quite & Dark) I put him out in the living room in his little shoe box during the day. I have to keep him wrapped in a towel to keep him upright and tucked in the corner, if not he extends his legs and pushes himself on his side, legs together... hmm.. what else.. anyone have any ideas here? I am going to the Feed Store tomorrow, hopefully I can make it to them before they close at 5... sigh... I know I can't watch him be like this much longer, I don;t know if he is in pain or suffering.. or if he will recover from this. I have video if I can post it I will.. Sorry to take over your post! Good luck and God Speed with the health and recovery of your girls!! If i learned anything, I will hatch my own, have them vaccinated.. and will NEVER mix healthy with "NEW" I am in fear every day now someone else will show symptoms..
1 of each please!
I am trying not to clean mine to much, I think I just cleaned my coop and I am ready to clean it again! Thinking of going the sand route? With shaving in the nesting box.. not all the Straw
Well Hellooooo all new peeps!! Welcome to the chicken maddness.. bwwwaahahahahahahah
Star gazing!? what in the world is that??
But the head thing is something I read on here:http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
Called head pumping or something along those lines, where they have difficulty breathing. That site helped a lot, I suggest taking a look.
I am doing the same, I know my feed store has terramycin but I am not sure if they have what Sally posted. And I really dont want to wait for it to ship!! :/
I wish you and your flock the best!
