So, here is the scoop.... I have a hen who may be a year old if not older, I am unsure since the individual I purchased from said a year and we are forced to go with his word. I have had the hen for a little over a month, she hasn't laid an egg since I brought her home. Within a week of bringing her home, my RIR pullet became ill and passed. Now she was doing better until she got caught in a hurricane rain storm and died within a few hours of that scenario. Ok, so let me get to the symptoms this hen has displayed and we can move forward. She was lethargic, runny nose, head sunken into body, foamy eye in corner of only one eye, and a cough. I did not notice any wheezing or gasping for breath at all. She was administered tetracycline for ten days and has recovered, however, she still has this constant cough, or what I assume to be a cough. It almost sounds like a clearing of the throat, I guess. I did not separate her from the flock and other than the very young RIR who died, which could have been bad husbandry, admittedly, I have not lost another one to whatever illness was present. My question is this, the hen still has the cough and runny nose at times and bubbles in the corner of her one eye which seems to go away after the early morning, what could it be? Should I cull the hen or let her live? She hasn't laid and egg yet and I am new to chickens and not willing to risk an entire flock for her. I plan on expanding the flock periodically until I reach my goal of 12-15 hens.
