I have 4 beloved hens and I wanted to get them some more buddies. I brought home 4 more little sweeties and as the guy was picking them up i checked to make sure they looked healthy. I was busy putting one in the carrier and the man handed an EE to my husband so I did not check her out well. When we got home I picked up the pullet and she had bubbly eyes and a thick bubbly cough. My husband said I was being dramatic and that everything was fine. Although I new in my heart there was something wrong with this chicken I turned a blind eye and hoped for the best. It will be 3 weeks tomorrow that I brought them home and last week I started them all on Duramyacyn-1 in their drinking water. My EE runs around (free range on 2 acres) and appears happy ,still has bubbly eyes ,the cough has lessened but is still there. My question.... Do chickens ever get better on their own with a good diet and exercise? My husband says I'm over reacting and all will be fine. i cannot stand the thought of any of my precious chickens getting sick because I am too dumb to take proper care of them.
