    Lethargic hen with watery eyes, nasal discharge and strange behavior. She stands on her feeder trying to eat out of the very top instead of the base. She also keeps her beak tucked into her feathers. She is about 8 years old.
    Thank you.

    Sounds like a respiratory infection.

    Tylan 200 injectable tetracycline (get a needle and syringe), dose 1cc for standard or .5cc for bantams. Give orally with dropper for 5-7 days.

    It may also be that she's 8 years old. She could be experiencing symptoms of aging layer issues.

    Sorry about your girl. I hope she gets better. [​IMG]

    Please keep us updated.
