    PeeWee is sick! UPDATE..FINAL Necropsy Results Page 6

    I did that, but sadly he died on saturday. He was regurgitating every time he lowered his head. Clear fluid was coming out. All of the same symptoms PeeWee had in the last day or two of his life. I think the flock knew a month ago that he wasn't well, because he was really knocked down in the...

    PeeWee is sick! UPDATE..FINAL Necropsy Results Page 6

    Thanks. I haven't decided on a necropsy yet, and I haven't put him down yet. I had to run to TSC. I'm debating on seeing whether or not he can hold on until monday when I can take him to UofK myself and have them euthanize and do necropsy, or putting him down now without getting one done. I have...

    PeeWee is sick! UPDATE..FINAL Necropsy Results Page 6

    Well, I'm about to lose another Rooster. Instead of starting a new thread, I thought I'd add to this one, in the event that the issues are connected. My oldest rooster, an EE that is 15 months old is on his last legs. He was in the original batch of chicks with PeeWee. This all started about a...

    Just getting started

    Meyer is a good choice from what I've heard. If your little chickies poop a bright neon green in the first day or so, don't worry. It's a product they use called "Oasis" that is a feed supplement they use for shipping.

    Just getting started

    I had a problem with feather picking with my chicks on 18% (Manna Pro) medicated starter. They had plenty of room, so that wasn't the issue. I switched to DuMOR 24% chick starter and didn't have an issue after that. They also make a 20% Starter/Grower. It can be found at Tractor Supply Company...

    Marek's incubation

    The dosage for Tylan 50 is 1/2 cc for standard birds and 1/4cc for bantams. I'd try it once a day for 4 days or so and see if it clears up.

    Marek's incubation

    First of all, I want to say thank goodness that it wasn't Mareks! Fowl pox on it's own isn't usually fatal. I'm assuming that they have dry pox as opposed to wet. The wet is the more dangerous of the two. As far as I know, the only thing you can really do is let it run its course. Sounds to me...

    What is best way to end suffering?

    http://www.maine.gov/agriculture/qar/sfdl.html I noticed that you live in Maine. This is the link to the State diagnostic lab. It's in Augusta. I don't know where that is in relation to you.

    Rooster won't move, comb is dull and chapped, watery poo with white and black flecks, little snot on

    Either one of those will work. I believe that the powder is easier to figure the dosage on. ETA: The dosage for 20% powder is 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water.

    What is best way to end suffering?

    I don't know how feasible this is for you, but if you live near your State Lab, you can call and arrange to take your chicken in and they will humanely euthanize her and do a necropsy to find out what she was suffering from. State labs do them for little or no cost while also providing answers...

    My poor Hens are dying. I think it is Face Mites, but the treatments aren't working.

    It's definitely a good thing to separate your sick birds. It may be too late as far as exposure goes at this point, but I'd still separate them. I'd also still try to get an email sent off with the pictures you posted here. It's much easier when you have visual aids, in my opinion. I hope you...

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe mosquitos can be the culprit.

    My poor Hens are dying. I think it is Face Mites, but the treatments aren't working.

    If I were you, I'd see if you can email them a picture. There's much more going on here than eye bubbles, in my opinion. If you can't email the extension office, I'd email the state lab. I'm sure they'd be happy to help you.

    My poor Hens are dying. I think it is Face Mites, but the treatments aren't working.

    Here's a link with pics that might help. Picture #10 has the most severe picture. http://partnersah.vet.cornell.edu/avian-atlas/ In the search box of that link, put in Avian Pox. It wouldn't link directly to that page. I think you're dealing with a really bad case of fowl pox.

    My poor Hens are dying. I think it is Face Mites, but the treatments aren't working.

    Oh gosh, poor girls! I wonder if it's a really severe case of fowl pox? I'll look around on the net to see what I can find that compares, but hopefully in the meantime someone will jump in here that might have a better opinion.

    Is there any way you can post a picture of your birds and their faces? It may help some of us figure out what you might have going on.

    Pale comb on rooster

    It's a possibility that it could be Mareks, especially if you have a history of it in your flock. I'm going to post a link to a thread I started about my little roo and let you read that. It's long. Starts out with symptoms similar to yours and has my necropsy report included which revealed he...

    PeeWee is sick! UPDATE..FINAL Necropsy Results Page 6

    If it weren't for you, leadwolf1, dawg53, CMV and several others, there wouldn't be much information in this thread! Every one of you helped me in one way or another to try to make my little guy better, and when I couldn't you helped me understand the awful disease he had. I am very thankful for...

    Marek's incubation

    Sick but still alive is their preference so they can humanely euthanize it and be in the best condition possible for testing. The one I sent to them had died overnight and I didn't find him until early the next morning, so he wasn't in the best shape even before I shipped him. If your third one...

    Marek's incubation

    I live in Louisville, too, and I sent a chicken to UofK for necropsy. I got a preliminary report within 7 days and the final report about 2 or more weeks later. In the preliminary report they didn't find anything that would tell them anything specific. It was only until they did the lab work and...
