I purchased 2 wheaten chicks from a country home breeder, they where to be a new addition to my 10yr olds chicken coop in our city backyard. Mammy - 10week old black wheaten was at first very happy, eating pellet starter and fresh water, and grazing on our back lawn when my daughter was out there supervising her etc. Fluffette - 12 week old grey wheaten was its buddy, bought at the same time from the same breeder....both seemed happy and flying running on the back lawn when out of thier shared cage... i noticed specks of growth om both chicks, Mammy on her eye lid and Fluffette on her beak lip... rang the breeder to ask what these may be - found out several days later that it was fowl pox...started researching how to treat it - apart form iodine etc nothing can be done! Thankfully i hadnt placed them with our adult chickens and rooster. Mammy was started to show signs of lethargy, poor eating of her starter pellets and going off her water...i had seperated her from Fluffette so that i could try and treat her on her own...under heat lamp, honey in water - no actual medication, fresh lettuce, fruit etc.. her stools were not healthy, runny watery...some spots of blood towards the end...thought i noticed worms but no expert. Mammy passed on yesterday, but i did notice that when i was cleaning up her newspaper from the cage that her last stool was more solid and had what looked like caviar (fish) eggs that where blood coloured in it I have been trying to find out what this may have been, to work out whether Fluffette has it and what i should do, vet or home treatment - as my 10yr old daughter will be heart broken again if Fluffette passes on too. It was bad enough with Mammy. I never thought chicken where this hard to keep and that sooo much could go wrong...it was a great way for me to start the local kids get use to fresh eggs, looking after chickens and enjoying them free range rather than battery hens etc. But its proving a major stress on me of late with this new lot! Please help me.
