In all fairness to the seller, I didn't hear any of the 5 girls I picked out sneezing or coughing. They were quiet the entire way home with the occassional mumbling to one another. Once I got them into their new home (I had no chickens prior) the box they were in was covered in what looked like healthy poop? Almost immediately they all decided to give me my first 'bad momma' heart attack - they started sneezing and occassionally coughing. My first thought was to panick, but my DH suggested it might be because of the fresh pine shavings litter I laid down for them. They all immediately started eating and drinking water (which had some electorlites mixed in it) and went about their business. This morning one of the girls (my Jap bantam) was looking like I do when I have the flu. Her feathers were ruffled, and the other one seemed to be giving her a pep talk. It was pitiful. As a side note I noticed that their poop seems to look fine except for one of the girls (not my Jap)... her poo is coming out like soft serve chocolate ice cream. Can anyone give me suggestions on what I can do to treat them all? I would hate to lose one so early in my chicken raisen hobby days. Thanks everyone for the help!
