Any way to know if that’s what she has? I’ve also thought maybe IB? Thoughts on treatment?You said that adding a chicken brought in a respiratory disease. MG is a common one, and the bacteria from it can affect many areas of the body, including the reproductive organs, in the synoviae form which affects the joints, and the respiratory system and air sacs which cNspread anything to all organs of the body.
Yeah, you should have the oyster shell out at all times if they are laying they need it, without it it can cause them to lay softshell eggs and that can cause them to get infections internally.I put out oyster shells every now and then, but not consistently. I have some now and could put some out.
I’m not quite sure what she had before, but when she was introduced to my flock along with another pullet she got ill. It was respiratory she was wheezy/gurgling and a mix of a bunch of treatments did the trick. She recovered with Tylan and a worming of safeguard and copper sulphate in her drinking water that time. I also used a humidifier and ozone. The copper sulphate is what finally kicked her over the end to recovery I think?
If it is a reproductive issue and she is randomly having issues passing an egg (also last time this happened I checked if she was egg bound and she wasn’t)...what do you think it may be and any recommendations for treatment or how to minimize her pain in the future?
The only way to know for sure what respiratory illness you have in your flock would be to have some testing done. You can send samples to an independent lab or ask your state lab how to test. (links below)Any way to know if that’s what she has? I’ve also thought maybe IB? Thoughts on treatment?
