    Chicken "colds"

    We recently bought 2 new hens (both approximately 5 months old) from a reputable dealer from whom we've bought birds before. On the way home though, both birds were sneezing. I have kept them quarantined from my flock for over a week and the sneezing is much better. I've been treating with apple...

    Unknown Respiratory Infection - aftermath questions

    Our flock contracted a respiratory illness. They all got sick, to varying degrees ranging from yellow snot flying everywhere and barely able to breath with TONS of rattling in the chest, to just a few sneezes and some lethargy. I suspect the two who showed the mildest symptoms had perhaps been...

    My 7 year old Buckeye had developed a honking respiratory sound a few weeks ago. First it was a couple times a week, but now it's all the time.

    I fear a couple things are going on.

    So this morning, I received my batch of day-old chicks through the mail (I wish it were possible to physically get them from the hatchery because I dislike putting the babies through that stress). They all seemed good and chipper with no signs of immediate issue. I gave them food and water as...

    How to treat mould/fungus in nostrils

    a couple of my hens have developed black nostrils and are sneezing. I’m assuming it is mould due to dust or moisture. I’m renovating the coop and will definitely be taking this into consideration. In the meantime, how do I treat this? I have antibiotics from the vet that I got when my rooster...

    Many Chickens Sneezing (& sometimes coughing)...Please HELP!!!

    Some background info: So, ever since I did a deep clean of my coop last fall, I have noticed the chickens in my big coop sneeze. Not everybody sneezes, but it seems like they are taking turns sneezing. I had a BSL hen that I wound up culling because her eyes and nostrils became bubbly. My coop...

    Broken shell in vent, vet visit, antibiotics, etc.

    This morning, there was a shell-less (and rather scrambled) egg under the roost. I figured out the culprit was my Ameraucauna, Henrietta, pretty quickly because she had a piece of egg stuck to her vent. She's two years old, a reliable egg layer, very docile good girl. I got her in a shallow tub...

    Duck Wheezing?

    I have a 6 week old duckling that sleeps and wheezes? Like it sounds like a long quack. It’s only when she sleeps. Is this normal? I have some poultry medication I can rub on her nostrils. Any advice or help?
