    [​IMG] I bought 2 pullets from a market. I have had them for 8 days now and both have a moist sneeze. The petshop gave me oxy b for it. I have been putting that in the water for a couple of days now and it is doing nothing.They are eating well but their poo is blacky green with a white tip, sometimes it just squirts out though. I have them seperated from my other silkies as all of them are young about 14 weeks old.Sites on the internet tells me to give them herbs and other stuff. Is this just something a chicken goes though? They are not stressed as they follow me about and dont mine being picked up. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate them Thank you

    Occasional clear watery sneezes are normal and are usually caused by dust in the nose. Frequent sneezes may not be good though. Give them .4-.6cc of VetRX orally twice daily for 1 week (longer if necessary). It's not an antibiotic. And watch for other symptoms!

    You can give them VetRx orally? I thought it was a topical treatment only... Hmmm. I'm going to have to read the directions again.

    Tylan is good for respiratory issues too...
