    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Sorry about your bird. Looks like she has canker, Trichomoniasis, It is a parasite that invades the mouth and throat and bird and will eventually kill her. She needs Metronidazole. 250mg once a day for 5 days.

    You can also post this in our emergency section for more help and input...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    I hope you can get her back to good health soon.

    I'm sorry about your bird. [​IMG] It looks like she has canker to me, too. Two Crows gave you some good advice as to how to treat canker, and I would also make sure to post in the Emergencies section of the forums.

    Good luck!

    Is that the same parasite that they used to warn of in pork that wasn't thoroughly cooked?
