    Sick Brahma

    One of my Brahmas, Metrowizard, started making a croaking sound today. It sounds like a respiratory issue. I took her to the vet this morning and they gave me antibiotics for her. I only took her to my local vet, not my avian vet (which is further away), so I wanted to hear what other people...

    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...

    Is Tylan Powder safe for healthy chickens?

    We recently saw one of our pullets showing symptoms of what looks to be respiratory disease. She had a runny nose and one of her eyes was bubbly so we quarantined her and began her on Tylan water but now one or two days later we found one of our other bigger girls showing some bubbles in one of...

    Sick hen, panting and wheezing

    Hi all! Hoping someone can help me... Last night I noticed one of my 2-year-old hens was hanging out in the corner of the coop, panting. Normally they sleep on their perches, and usually when I see one on the floor it means they're sick. I've seen birds panting a bit the last few days since it...

    Respiratory infection or something else??

    Last night (about 9 pm) when locking up my birds I noticed one Hen (golden comet) was laboring to breathe and had a little bit of a rattle. She had no discharge from her eyes or nose, no swelling anywhere, her wattles and combs looked nice and red. She coughed one good time and the rattle...

    Mucus buildup

    Hi, my gold laced orpington started laying two days ago. The problem started well before that but that’s just an age perspective. The last week or so she has been opening her mouth a lot like she’s chocking on something and trying to get it out. I’ve looked in her beak and there is nothing stuck...

    Heat Exhaustion or Respiratory Illness?

    It was very hot today and I noticed one of my hens mouth breathing more so than others. I’ve brought her inside and I’m not sure if this is from the heat or a respiratory illness. Please advise? VIEW VIDEO (you may have to download it to view) I’ve provided some electrolytes with water.

    Emergency/disease

    I have a twelve chicken flock. My buff orpington, Patty was not in the roost the other night when I went to close the coop door. We had recently got a new lighting setup for my coop, and I figured it just needed to be adjusted and it was too dark for her to want to jump onto a roost. So I picked...

    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...

    Respiratory disease in chicken/duck mixed flock; do I treat both?

    Hello! I am new to raising chickens (and ducks). About a month after introducing 4 new pullets to our flock of 10 ducks, I noticed one of them had a swollen eye. I quarantined her for a while and was treating naturally for coryza (colloidal silver, garlic, ACV). She seemed better, except for...

    How long do respiratory diseases stay in environment?

    My whole flock is suffering from some form of respiratory illness. I know you can control most respiratory illnesses with meds, but I also know most cause them to be carriers for life. I've had so many problems and heartache with this flock already I believe I am ready to cull and start fresh in...
