    Ugh....I just got some chicks about a month old and noticed one has a swollen eye and appears to be a bit runny. What is my best course of treatment???? I have her seperated. Also will I be able to put her with my flock if she gets better?? Or will she always be a carrier?(I’m assuming it’s...

    A must-read for infections! Durvet, Duramycin, Tetracycline or Oxytetracycline INJECTIONS

    hey!!!! How long did you treat for and how many days in between doses? I can’t seem to find a straight answer anywhere. I have a hen who I believe has respiratory crud. She is gasping for air .

    Gapeworm or respiratory????

    So, we ended up treating with antibiotics. However this morning I found this poop in her pen. What kind of worm is this???? Her symptoms have all but passed besides a sneeze here and there. I don’t know what to do as far as treatment...do I deworm? Safeguard?

    Gapeworm or respiratory????

    Update. Decided to treat for respiratory. I could only find Duramcyin. She’s had two shots, second one we have two days after the first. She appears to be better. She’s not gasping anymore she only sneezes once in a while. Should we continue with another round of shots???

    Gapeworm or respiratory????

    Would you suggest trying to treat for respiratory first? She got noticeably thinner too. She was pecking at some food when I left the house today. I’m headed to tractor supply now what would you suggest using?

    Gapeworm or respiratory????

    She’s been wheezy ever since I got her about 6 months ago. I never thought anything of it becuase she never showed any other symptoms.

    Gapeworm or respiratory????

    It would be but there is not one near me that treats It would be if there was one near me that treated them. I haven’t looked in the back of the throat yet. I’ve read that gape is not very common in chickens. I just don’t want to treat her for the wrong thing.
