    Hi I have a hen named Calvin. Yesterday she had a stinky face and some yellow stuff on the top of her beak in the inside of her mouth. She can eat and drink. But I don't know how to get the yellow gunk out. And she stinks like something died please help she is a young hen like 6 months and almost laying
    I read that it might be canker but not sure cause she stinks

    If it's canker you will need to treat it with something like metronidazole (Flagyl, Fish-Zole or Meditrich).
