    I've read all the posts I can find about upper resp diseases of chickens, but I'm not sure this is what my hen has. I bought her 2 months ago and although I didn't notice it when she was put in the crate, when I got her home she was hunched up with a watery eye. Two months later the eye is still watery with a discharge. Other eye and nostrils are fine. She came in a bunch of 7 and none of the other birds are sick, although one pullet had a scab near one nostril and one under her beak. They eat fine, but none are laying.

    Any ideas? It's not as severe as what I've read, but perhaps she's a carrier of something?

    TIA,

    Becky in warm sunny NoDak until tomorrow!
