    Respiratory Issues with Buff

    Hello, I am looking for some help with my buff orph that is about 6 months old. As of this morning when she came out of the coop she had a whistling breath and was sneezing. She also has a runny nose. I've given electrolytes in the water and then was told oregano would work better. So currently...

    Clear Bubbly Eye and Head Shaking

    Help! It's been one thing after another--scratch that, multiple things overlapping for my poor chickens. I just started a de-worming regimen yesterday after evidence of roundworms in a couple poops. I thought the culprit might be my 1.5 y/o EE, who had just started molting, stopped laying, and...

    clearly ill on multiple levels

    Mentally ill, and now it seems quite physically ill...Oreo is a silkie, only a year old. She's never been the sharpest knife in the box but now I think something's seriously wrong with her. Like she's really lethargic, just sits around the coop and doesn't do anything. And a complete lack of...

    Please help - anyone have any guesses on this mystery illness?

    Hi! Thanks so much in advance for advice here. I’m devastated that I keep losing birds and panicked that I will have to cull the whole flock including four new babies. 18 months ago, got 4 pullets. Immediately, one was very sick. Symptoms: lethargic, no “chicken behavior” like scratching...

    Ducks & Mycoplasma

    I've come to the sad realization that the chickens in my flock have Mycoplasma aka chronic upper respiratory illness. I have Khaki Campbells, Muscovy, and Pomeranian Saddleback Geese as well that have all, at some point, been exposed to this nasty nastiness. What's the prognosis for them? Is it...

    Disinfecting coop after Mycoplasma Synovaie

    Hey all, I have depopulated after an M.S. outbreak. How do I properly disinfect the coop and run before adding new chicks? Everything I have read is for mycoplasma gallisepticum and it seems like it lasts on surfaces longer than mycoplasma synovaie. I have read that MS only can last 4 days...

    VA- Bielefelder hen from MS positive flock needs a home.

    I have a super sweet Bielefelder hen laying daily. She is the last one left from a Mycoplasma Synoviae positive flock and she's pretty lonely. I thought I would try to find her another suitable flock before we have to cull. Know anyone with an MS flock that may be willing to take her?

    MG? Coryza?

    I just noticed my girl was staying next to me all day today. When I squatted to talked to her, I noticed her bubbles in her eyes. Upon research, I figured it could either be Coryza or MG? Is there a difference in the two? What’s the difference? Demographics: SW Louisiana. She is either 11...

    Can you test birds for mycoplasma when they are asymptomatic?

    I have two healthy (looking) hens left out of six chicks I purchased last spring. The first bird I sent for a necropsy came back positive for M.S. (PCR). The last bird I sent in for testing in December, with similar symptoms was negative for M.S. I want to see if the two girls I have now are...

    Mycoplasma synoviae, gout or just general arthritis?

    First let me say I’m grateful for this web site and all the wonderful wisdom you all dispense! :-) My 2.5 year old Rhode Island Red has had swollen ankles and feet for the past 2.5 months. She is eating and drinking great, no bluish crown or color. Her feet just keep getting bigger and bigger...

    Turkey keeps flipping on to his back.

    So a couple weeks ago my 4 year old turkey, Brittany, had foam in the corner of his eyes and without any other symptoms the vet recommended just keeping an eye on him. I took him in to the vet when he started stumbling, spinning in a circle and flipped on to his back once, the vet gave him...

    Mycoplasma Mycoplasmosis MG MS (How bad is it??)

    Recently new to chickens, I had a vet come and inspect the farm and all the chickens. She found them all to be in good health and my farm to be clean and in order. She also advised me on normal worming, parasites, chicken health, etc. Later that week, one of our favorites died suddenly. No...

    Mereck's, MG and MS

    Well, this stinks... I just got a word from the vet that my little Mini that died last week (after me carrying for her for two months) had Mereck's, MG, and MS! I got new birds from a local family farm after a stinking possum murdered my perfectly happy healthy birds (one was left, because...

    Still struggling....thinking Wet Pox instead of Mycoplasma?!

    Ok so I posted a few days ago, that my girls are being given denagard for over a week. They had foamy eye, raspy breathing and 2 passed away (beaks open like they had trouble breathing - labored). I thought it was mycoplasma. (If any pass, I plan on doing a necropsy) One of my girls now has...

    Mycoplasma and dengard and oxine

    Hi I haven’t had it confirmed by an expert but all of my research has led me to believe my birds have mycoplasma ( raspy breathing, foaming and swollen eyes etc ) I have lost 2 in the the past week. I started with Denagard (15 ml per gallon) in all of the waterers added some sugar. I also used...

    Necropsy results for 11 week old chick

    Hello everyone, This is me and my husbands first flock of chickens and I think we have started off on a very wrong foot. We got several chicks from various breeders around the same time and did not keep them separate, which I now realize was a mistake. About 2 weeks later a few (3 of 10) started...

    Chickens Occasionally Sneezing Clear, Watery Fluid

    Not sure if this is normal, but I've noticed some of my chickens sneeze easily, particularly in the evening and/or right after eating something moist like watermelon or mash. It's generally the 3-4 same chickens out of seven. When they get sneezy it looks like a clear, watery substance that...

    Testing for Mycoplasma??

    I have around 25 chickens and half have either mycoplasma or coryza. Too many of these birds are special to me to cull the whole flock. I would consider culling just the carriers if there was a cheap way to test them individually. If test are expensive or only postmortem, then I could cull them...

    MG? Help I need advice on what is our best option.

    I need some input, advice, help figuring out what is the best option. We have had our original flock for just over a year. Every thing had been going great! I got some new birds recently and made the stupid mistake of not quarantining them for 30 days, after a week I started to integrated them...
