    omg, That poor thing! I am so sorry. Is she weezing or breathing hard? is it a foamy discharge from the eye? or just water? Does she stink?
    Might be a respitory thing but never seen the goo from the mouth before. Please keep us posted and good luck!

    When I have had troubles(respiratory, crop mold, crop bound, or any other unexplained illness) I usually treat with Duramycin..When that didn't help and I currently have 2 with runny eyes and apparent trouble breathing and a little cough, I found another treatment.

    This has worked for me before and I hope it does this time.

    Mix 1 Teaspoon Epsom Salt with 1 Pint Warm Water, Stir to disolve and the remaining salt goes to the bottom.

    I use a Syringe with a longer slim tip on it and inject it into the beak toward the bottom, careful not to get into the nostrils!

    I have actually made it a little stronger.. The water needs to be a little warmer than just tepid but not too warm to burn them.

    This mixture I have given 2 times daily. Refrain them from food. Give them Vitamin and Elec. Water,

    This mixture pretty much cleans them out like a laxative..sorta.. I have found that it worked.

    Then later the 2nd day give them small amounts of food.

    It will be normal to see runny poos and diarrhea so just make sure they do not dehydrate.

    Then I follow with something like Duramycin for 5-7 days at a higher dose than normal. Often I give it to them at feeding time in a

    syringe also. That way they are getting a higher dose, not just in their normal water.

    Not sure if this will help but I sure hope so. I know how frustrating this is. Weather change here and suddenly mine have this.

    Good luck and let me know if this helps![​IMG]

    My baby looks exactly like yours and she just started the discharge this morning that I noticed. I did notice a few days ago that she wasn't feeling well and didn't hang around with the other babies. I picked her up this morning and her chest was like it was swollen and really soft like a water bag. I started massaging it and more water came out and a piece of grass came out with it. I put her down and she started drinking water so I put her in a pen by herself. I don't know what is wrong with her
