    Hi, my black sex link that is approx 20 weeks old has developed a cough. It sounds really strange. Like a dry cough. She doesn't appear sick in any other way. She is eating and drinking and moving about just fine. My husband noticed it yesterday. Should I remove her fromt he others? We bought an older bird 18 months, and she started this when we got her but it went away. (I thought it was just her noise, I had no clue!) Any suggestions would be great!!!!

    I use oxine but you have to order it. They do sale other things at the feed store but what do you have going on. search cough or coughing can help you more then I can.

    Thank you so much!! [​IMG] I have never heard of that before! I have been researching it and now I am going to buy some. How would I treat her with it? Dilute it and squirt it in her beak? I am clueless at all of this! I keep learning more everyday!

    Thanks again!
