I hatch my own chicks and sell them day old.
Some times a few weeks old.
I purchased these vaccines fo them and I don't have a clue how to use them. Could you kindly advice how to use these bottled vaccines.
My goslings all 9 of them, not sure what type they are but the previous owner said they are Canadian x something. They are all from the same batch from one mother and 2 weeks old (the mom and 2 goslings were killed by jackals, one gosling has a damaged eye and leg from the attack but he is managing hope he makes it to adulthood)
I am going to put them in the silkie pen today and then move them to their own enclosed pen till they are about 2 months, we want them to roam the property.
Does he have diarrhoea? He could have a respiratory infection I suggest you take him to a vet to get him checked out. If it is a disease you will have to make sure your flock gets treated asap.
oooo not good, hope all is well and your roo is ok. I had a hen with heatstroke this weekend its still touch and go but she is up and about and eating again but still very weak. I check on her constantly and if she does not improve by tonight I'm taking her to the vet.
What type of chickens does your neighbour have? Silkies have mulberry coloured combs and wattles. If they are not it sounds like fowl cholera and you do not want your chickens getting that, I had a friend lose a whole flock to it. http://www.thepoultrysite.com/publications/6/diseases-of-poultry/181/fowl-cholera/
That is my silkie roo Puff
ok not good, my friend who lost his chickens to chicken cholera says his chickens had the same symptoms you are describing, its a bacterial infection so chances are the guy who sold you the chickens never kept them in a hygienic environment or even inoculated them. Your roos need to get a course of antibiotics asap and watch your other chickens for the same symptoms. It takes one infected chicken to wipe out an entire flock the disease can spread through the drinking water.
Yes it can be very costly holding thumbs hope it sorts out your roo
