can chickens catch a cold?
No, they cannot "catch" head colds, as such. They can, however, get pneumonia, fungal infections in the lungs, plus diseases that will make them carriers of that disease even if they seem to recover from the symptoms, like mycoplasmosis/CRD and Coryza.
This thread has some good reading for you on fungal issues:
How old are they? Have they ever been wormed, with what, when, how many times repeated?
List the symptoms they are showing, their ages, whether you have ever wormed, etc..... More info please.
Also... use the Search here on BYC to seach for symptoms.. and/or Worming or Worming with Valbazen.
Quote:well it's just one hen......sneezing, hoarse voice. ages 22 weeks to 1 year. the hen sneezing , etc is 8 months. i wormed with Valbazen about 3 weeks ago. and 4 weeks before that.
This morning one of my hens has what appears to be runny nose and or eyes. She also is having some congestion. Unsure what this is, I seperated her from the rest of my chickens.What is this and how do I treat it??
