    One of my 12 week old chicks has bumps on her face and one side even looks swollen. There is also a line on top of her head like her head was caught in something. I'm not sure if is a cold or from her head being caught. She isn't sneezing but I heard another chick sneeze. What should I do? I have her by her self now. What antibiotic should I use? Thanks

    It's good you separated. I would only start anti-biotics if you know what's going on (different antibiotics work on different diseases) or if you are throwing everything possible at it, because it is dying.

    Good luck
