So I did something sort of stupid. Yesterday I bought a very sweet hen from a young woman who breeds and sells a few different varieties of bantam chickens nearby. We were all set up to meet and make the exchange, hen for $, and she let me know the hen was bathed just before she brought her over. She also let me know that since the bath, the hen had started coughing a bit and she was worried she may have gotten some water in her beak. She seemed honest and even said if the cough persisted we could just trade back. I had already driven all the way out to buy this hen, so I just bought her... after doing some research I’m feeling dumb. It’s sounding like a cough due to a bath is unlikely and it’s more likely this chicken has a highly contagious illness. I have her outside in a dog crate away from my hens, but is that quarantined enough? The closest they can get is about 5ft away. I have zero experience bathing hens. Is it possible she’s telling the truth and this cough is only due to a bathing mishap? Has anyone else had that happen? Thanks!
