    one of my six chickens, a year old BR, seems to have clear fluid coming from one side of her nose. There are no other symptoms at present. She has been separated from the other five for about six weeks because they were all pecking her terribly badly. Poo seems normal, food and water consumption seems normal, she is in her own wire bottom cage for some of the day, and allowed to free range for part of the day when we can watch her.

    Any thoughts as to what it may be? She seems otherwise healthy today, wondering if I will find more symptoms tomorrow.

    Any thoughts as to what I can do to prevent her from getting sicker.

    Do chickens just get a sniffley nose ever?

    No Wheezing, no sneezing, no coughing, no odd behavior, not sure if she laid today, but I know she did yesterday.

    Any thoughts or prevention tips would be much appreciated.
