    This morning when I let my girls out of the coop- I noticed one of them seems to have a runny nose and a bit of a sneeze/gurgle thing going on. She's 15 weeks old or so... Thoughts? Thanks!

    Sounds like she may have a cold/ sinus infection. If so it is deadly left untreated. And it can cause physical and mental disabilities as well.

    You will either need to treat just her and have her separate or treat everyone ( people have differing opinions) however if more than one or 2 get it then everyone will get it. I suggest a water soluable antibiotic like tetracycline

    Can you get tetracycline at TSC?

    Im not sure, they may have something like it, as in part of the cycline family, or maybe duramycin or Something. you best bet other wise would be a farm vet/ lifestyle vet or bird vet then a 'pet' vet
