So I was really really really REALLY stupid and took some chickens from neighbors who were moving and put them in with my flock. WHAT was I thinking? Of course now some sickness is sweeping through my chickens and everyone in my family is horribly sick too. Bird and human alike, we all seem to have cold symptoms. The birds make rattling noises when they crow or squawk and some make them just when they're breathing. A few have foam or crusty eyes and the really bad ones had totally crusted beaks. Nobody's died yet and it's been going on for a few weeks now, although a few looked borderline. I decided to try shots of penicillin and so far the borderliners are still alive-the eyes and beaks cleared up too although there's still the rattling when they breath. Not sure if it's the penicillin or not that helped. Any suggestions?
