    Hello every one
    I have 4 chickens. since last week one of the chicken(male) stopped taking feed. The symptoms are
    yellowish and greenish watery droppings , it looks as he is trying to breath but having problem, laziness closed eyes with water in it and today water discharge from eyes as well. As a result the same symptoms have started in another chicken although they are not severe as in the earlier and elder one .I have taken them to a veterinary doctor and he had treated with injection but no improvement can any one guide what is this disease , what is the cause and how can i treat my sick chickens.

    Welcome to BYC. It sounds possibly like a respiratory disease such as mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG.) How old are your chickens? Is there any drainage from the nostrils, sneezing or coughing, rattles or wheezes, or swelling around the eye? Here is a good link to read about common diseases including MG, infectious bronchitis, and infectious coryza: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
