5 days ago, our pol Araucana, Blanche, had an impacted crop. We managed to get that sorted and then she started sneezing and gurgling. I've decided since she wasn't eating, she must have got run down and got a respiratory infection. We tried to just keep her warm, etc and feed her but today she was so poorly I went to the vet and got baytril. She was lethargic and sneezing, even wheezing a bit. She kept falling asleep all the time. Outside with the rest, she would sit absolutely still and not interact with the others. She'd look at food and then look away, probably falling asleep. I didn't want to give an antibiotic because I was worried it could cause sour crop after her crop problem. And she's gone very skinny. Within hours of her dose she appeared better than she has in days. She was pecking at the ground and scratching with the rest of them. Her tail was up and her neck wasn't all hunched up. When I looked in at bedtime, she was even roosting, which she hasn't done in quite some time. Is it possible it worked that quickly? Or is this wishful thinking? She's the loveliest, maddest hen around. She'd be terribly missed! What are your experiences?
