    We picked up three Silver Laced Wyandottes and a Buff Plymoth Rock pullet a few weeks back from the same place . So far they've been very healthy and happy birds . Today we noticed the three wyandottes have some clear watery nasal discharge . No other symptoms . Eating and drinking as usual , active and appear to be in excellent health otherwise . Eyes look normal and healthy . They don't sound rattly or anything just have a bit of clear discharge .

    Non of the other chickens have it just the three wyandottes .

    What could this be caused by ? Should I be concerned ?

    Did you quarantine the new brids before integrating them in your flock? I'd suggest some kind of respiratory infection. Hoping one of the more experienced folks should come along... [​IMG]

    Sounds like they could just have a cold, if no other symptons are showing. I put beechams powders in my drinkers, for a couple of days, this usually sorts the problem out.
