we found a stray chicken (long story) Anyway, this chicken was not looking great when we found her 2 weeks ago. She has been perking up, but has lost a lot of feathers. WHen I was dusting her with Seven, thinking the feather loss might be a bug issue, I noticed she was wheezing. I have her in her own pen about 1 foot from my flock. Is this far enough to keep my girls safe and what can I do to help "Rhodie" ?

Quote:Not far enough away, in my opinion.. respiratory stuff is very contagious and that's close enough for them to get whatever she has.

Is she wheezing all the time? Any sneezing? Or discharge from the eyes or nostrils?

Is she eating and drinking ok?

Any other symptoms?
