    So yesterday my newest little light brahma had a bright green dried "booger" on her one nose hole. I thought it was a piece of dried broccoli, as they had some in the morning. I picked it off and didn't think much else of it. This morning one of my other brahmas has the same thing. One nostril. Nothing oozing or dripping, no sneezing or anything. I have scoured the forums and internet and can't find ANYTHING about it.
    I separated the 3 brahmas that all came from the same place just to be safe, as the 3 of them seem to hang around together and not interact much with the original flock of 6.
    Any ideas? I've emailed the breeder asking her advice and almost hope she will just take them back. I couldn't leave well enuf alone and got chicken-greedy :(
    I'm so mad at myself.....

    Well, they are going back to the breeder tonight. I'm sure it's nothing serious but I'm not taking any chances :(
