I have 3 little D'uccle pullets that I was told were 5 months old when I purchased them a month ago, but they were very small. Anyways, they were adorable and I bought them out of a large chicken farm. I was keeping them in a large enclosed dog carrier (with sides), when after a week I noticed one was growing a large wart like thing on her beak. I researched immediately and found that maybe it could be from ammonia, so I promptly switched to a dog crate (wire) in the the chicken coop with my flock, but seperate. They are small and I have mostly full size birds. A couple days following, the bird with the growth began having watery bubbles in it's eye, so I started some triple antibiotic opthalmalic ointment. The growth continued to grow. Now shortly after beginning this treatment, I ended up in the hospital and am unmoveable for 2 weeks. When I get back out to my poor babies, they are all now one by one, having bubbles and discharge in the eyes. So ointment for all and they have been on Sulfadimethoxizine for 4 days now. Getting very frustrated. Not seeing much improvement. Eyes have been being treated for 6 days so far, and though the bubbles are gone, the eyes look sore and swollen. My vet, who does do livestock, doesn't do chickens too much. I'm not sure what is the cause of this. Also, one morning, one of the pullets seemed close to death, so I immediately put a heat lamp on her, and she perked up later that day. I've been keeping heat on them now over night. It is getting between 45-55 overnight lately. This is not good going into winter. I wanted to be introducing them to my flock by now. Any suggestions, please!
