    Hi Everyone.

    I'm not sure what the problem could be so any help would be appreciated.
    I have a total of 25 guineas that free range with my Marans on my farm. They are very good about staying on the property so I know they haven't gotten into anything.
    One of them is lethargic. She sits next to the barn and squints her eyes. I did walk up to her and noticed little bubbles in the corners of her eyes. Almost like her eyes were too moist. She is also squinting her eyes. She tries to stay with the group as they range but doesn't always keep up. I also thought she sounded a little wheezy. She is about 6 months old and seems in good weight. She has been showing symptoms for about 2 days.
    Any thoughts on what it could be and how to treat would be great.

    Thanks.

    Renegade , hi, Sounds to me like a respritory infection..or cold. I treat them the same as you would for a chicken.

    If you can catch it, isolate in pen and get some vet rx and terrimycin to put in the water.along with some vitimans.
    hope this helps and the guinea gets better soon
