    Hi all,
    There is a respiratory virus in my flock.
    You can read in these 3d

    my chicken Arancina cought this and seems to get well, but this morning she has noisy breathe, Violet comb, she stays alone with closed eyes and head between feathers, she doesn't want eat or drink. I gave her a coadiuvant for respiratory disease made of essentials oils and put some drops on the feathers maybe they help her to breathe. I'm going to try with homeopathy (on giada it worked pretty well) but What can i do for her???
    She is one of my originary chickens, i'm very affectionate to her!!! I'm going to post a picture as soon as possible.

    Thank you very much

    P.s she does watery white poops (not swollen abdomen or full crop)

    Try bringing her inside and putting on a hot shower to fill the room with steam she can breath in. Sometimes steam can loosen things up.

    If she has a virus, such as infectious bronchitis, it may take a month or so for symptoms to leave her. Drinking enough and eating would be the most important things to make sure she is doing. Make sure that she has good air circulation in her coop, limit dust and wet or moldy conditions.

    If she should develop bubbles in an eye or face swelling, seen in MG mycoplasma, you may want to contact a veterinarian for oytetracycline, an antibiotic. Do you have a bird vet in Italy? You may want to add your location in your profile page.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I remember when my first chicken died. It was heartbreaking.

    thank you :hugs
    it isn't the first hen in my flock who die... but it was horrible the same of other times :(
    I had two internal layers (long illness) and two hens that died for heatstroke this summer (terrifying)
    Also Arancina had the heatstroke, but she totally recovered before this :hit
