Chicken cold, runny nose, swollen under eye, bubble and mucus in eye.

I have an almost three month old pullet with a runny nose and swollen under eye. It’s only on one side of the face. She sneezes and I believe is uncomfortable breathing from the one side. Other than that her appetite and demeanor don’t seemed to have changed. Are there any medicines or treatment I could look into? Will it pass on its own or should I intervene?

With the bubbles in the eye, facial swelling, and sneezing, it sounds like she could have a chronic respiratory disease such as mycoplasma gallisepticum or MG. It can be carried by another bird with or without symptoms, and also can be passed through a hatching egg. Survivors are carriers for life, and it is a common disease in backyard birds, sometimes coming from infected flocks or wild birds. Where did you get her? There are a number of antibiotics that you can get from a vet, including Tylosin, doxycycline or other tetracyclines, Denagard, or the banned for chickens Baytril. Here is where you could get Tylosin powder to put in her water, but it would take some time:

She was born here, all of her coop mates don’t show any symptoms and neither do the rest of our flock.

The tylosin or tylan may help treat symptoms. If you should lose her (I really hope not,) a necropsy by your state vet could be performed that would include testing to identify what the problem may be.

I would like to add that my chicken is now starting to expel a clear odorless liquid from her mouth, like vomiting but chickens can’t vomit. I’m having a hard time figuring out what could lead to all of this. She is still active, eating, and drinking
