Hi there, I posted this in the other forum but thought it might be more appropriate here. I am keeping six broilers in my yard, who are about a month old. Yesterday one of them started having very strained breathing (pump handle). I quarantined her and gave her water with electrolytes and a little apple cider vinegar, but did not think she would make it through the night. Today she is is still alive but breathing with difficultly and after I picked her up there were small bright green bugs on my hand, kind of looked like aphids. Could these be mites? Some stats: breed-cornish cross age-5 weeks housing- box coop with straw bedding and free range in 10x8 yard space feed- modesto milling organic layer pellets (it's what I could find out here) They have free access to food and water, although I've started them on a 12 on 12 off in the past day (not the sick chicken though). The sick bird's poop looks fine, not runny or watery, no blood. Eyes are clear, no other signs of infection or disease. Any suggestions about the bird? If she recovers is it even safe to reintegrate her considering she could still be a carrier for whatever this is? Thanks!
