    I have a 6 month old EE who seems to have a cold she has a runny nose and is sneezing. She is eating and drinking great and her poop is good. she is still running around and looks like she feels good. these are my first chickens and I'm not sure what to do. I have 29 other chickens and they all seem fine. I wipe her nose every time I go out and check on them, but don't know what else to do for her. any suggestions?

    Keep her away from everyone else. Chickens don't get colds. This sounds like it's a respiratory illness.

    I took mine from the group.Put it in the garage and gave some sulmet in the drinking water. I might have even popped some antibios down her throat.One other got sick and put into the garage with her.They stayed till no more boogers,sneezing, and wet rattle,and then back with the others. I do not recall if I gave the other 6 sulmet in the water,but that IS an option.To treat them all,but more intensive meds with the sick one.
