    Revisiting the Computer fan ....

    Well I ended up with 10 fertile eggs and 9 of them hatched!!! So the fan seemed to do great and now I have 9 beautiful LF Cochin chicks. However, I have one issue that has me stumped. I have a chick that was the last to hatch (late on day 22) and all her feather were stuck to her after...

    Revisiting the Computer fan ....

    Well it's hatching season again and I haven't hatched anything in my LG 9200 in almost 2 years because my lovely ladies have been doing just fine by themselves. So, I decided to pull some eggs from the ladies this week and give it a shot again. I dug the trusty LG out of the storage building...

    Chicken sneezing and swollen around eye

    I'm sorry to hear that my friend. Sounds like the person you got them from knew that they were probably sick and just pawned them off on you. That's very sad because people who do that kind of thing don't care about the person of the animals. I still wouldn't discount trying Denagard as a...

    Anyone familiar with DENAGARD ??

    A friend who has used it numerous times advised me to give no more than 15cc as a treatment dosage and to give it for 7 days on any that have symptoms and of course the preventive amount of 8cc for the remainder of the flock. Not trying to say your information is incorrect dawg53 because that...

    Chicken sneezing and swollen around eye

    You still need to keep a close watch on them over the next week at least. Symptoms have a way of fading in and out. I would still invest in at least some duramycin (which can be bought at your local TSC) just add it to there water for 5 to 7 days. 2 tsp per gallon (if I remember correctly)...

    Bloodlines ...

    (Quick background) I've have chickens for nearly 2 years now and have had several successful hatches from my current stock and some purchased on ebay. They are all beautiful chickens and I've done considerable amounts of research on how they should look and so forth, so they all are pure (as...

    Chicken sneezing and swollen around eye

    Yeah It's a tough decision. However, you have to decide to either permanently close you flock or to cull them all. Your best bet is to have them tested, then you'll know what you're dealing with and perhaps wont have to cull. Denagard is excellent for respiratory diseases if you want to...

    Chicken sneezing and swollen around eye

    The swollen eye can be a sign of conjunctivitis which is typically associated with Infectious Bronchitis or Laryngotracheitis (LT). You need to get them on some Tylan 50 or a similar antibiotic. make sure you've separated the affected ones so that it doesn't spread any worse. Sorry for the...

    Gapeworm causing eye problems ???

    Well that's what I was guessing but I just found it odd that the symptoms would disappear so quickly. I have a decent general knowledge of most of the diseases, however I don't have alot of actual personal experience so that's why I was asking. The symptoms for most of them can be so random...

    Chicken sneezing and swollen around eye

    Typically the symptoms you are describing means some sort of respiratory issue. As you said above it is scary when they show these type of symptoms and there literally are tons of different strains that it could be. Do the eyes appear to have "Bubbles" in them or just a discharge? Are you...

    Gapeworm causing eye problems ???

    Is it possible that Gape worm can cause bubbly eyes? I know that typically bubbly eyes are associated with some type of respiratory problem. However, roughly a week ago, I noticed a few small bubbles in the corner of both my chicks eyes so of course I immediately separated her, put some triple...

    I am so confused ...

    Anyone have any pictures of a Buff Orpington cross with a Silver Laced Wyandotte chicks ?? I recently hatched out some eggs from my ladies and due to the passing of my father I was home when they hatched. My wife didn't bother to pay attention to which one came from which eggs and didn't...
