I have given up. Now I am needing to know how to cull this 5 month old chicken??? Please give me Ideas. Hi All. I have been dealing with this for about a month and I am at a loss. So if you can help me please do. 1) What type of bird , age and weight. Buff Orpington, 5 months, Normal weight.....? 2) What is the behavior, exactly. Normal, except scared of the other birds because they are picking on her. 3) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. No Other injuries. 4) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. Nothing happened that I know of. 5) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Yes. eating and drinking normal 6) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Normal poop, normal frequency. 7) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? 2 weeks of Durymycin - no difference, Baytril 10 days, termycin(sp) 6 days No difference 8 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? If the bird can be treated in home then I can deal. I am not sure I want to go as far as needing a vet. She doesn't seem to be in any pain and is acting normal, eating drinking and foraging. 9) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. 10) Describe the housing/bedding in use. Have her quarentined (sp) pine shaving from TSC. Here are some pictures to help.
