My chicken has a runny nose... why and how do I stop it?
I would isolate that chicken in a warm place. Maybe a crate or dog kennel or pet carrier. Make sure to keep it warm and give it food and water.
I have a vet that I consult but if you don't hopefully others will have ideas for you!
If you know the weight of your chicken maybe you could call your vet (do you have a dog or cat vet?) and they could give you some Baytril which is a good antibiotic for chickens. They could help you figure the dose if you know your chickens weight! Good luck!
Sounds like a respiratory infection of which there are several kinds. To try to narrow down what kind your chicken has, here are some links from avian authorities, as the type of infection will determine which antibiotic to give. Most of the antibiotics for respiratory diseases in chickens are available at feed stores including some of the national chains like Tractor Supply. Baytil is not effective against the organisms that cause respiratory infections therefore should not be used for that purpose.
