    Hi Everyone,
    I just noticed one of my 6 month old black sex link hens has clear thin snot dripping from her nostrils. She is also breathing with her mouth open (and it isn't hot today, so not panting like on a hot day). I've called the vet and waiting for a call back, but any suggestions? None of my others are showing signs, but I want to nip this in the bud so it doesn't spread to the others.

    Quote:Agreed. Definitely keep her seperated in case it's CRD.

    Vet gave me two doses of injectable Baytril. I went out there to get the hen and now I can't find one with a runny nose! [​IMG]
