    [​IMG]I AM SO FRUSTRATED. I POSTED THREAD ABOUT MY BARRED ROCK WHO WAS ACTING DRUNK, HAD FECAL SAMPLE RUN, TESTED + FOR COCCIDIA, TREATED HER AND DEWORMED HER. SHE DIED 10 DAYS AFTER HER FIRST SIGN OF NOT FEELING SO HOT. I FOUND THAT SHE 1 COULDN'T WALK, 2 LOST WEIGHT AND 3 SHE HAD ONE EYE THAT TURNED GREY. I AM TREATING ALL MY GIRLS FOR COCCIDIA AS THE VET RECCOMENDED ALONG WITH DURAFEND TO DEWORM.
    NOW I HAVE BEEN SITTING OUT IN THE COOP TAKING "NOTES" THEY ALL SHAKE THEIR HEADS AND HAVE A SNEEZE NOW AND THEN. THEY LOOK BRIGHT SHINEY AND EAT LIKE PIGS! POOP ALL LOOKS FINE..... NOW WHAT??? DO I JUST LET THE HEAD SHAKING AND SNEEZES GO?? WTH CAUSES HEAD SHAKING?

    If the head shake/sneeze is just happening every once in a while, I wouldn't worry too much. You've checked them over closely for mites??
    Sneezing/head shaking could be anything from "got dust in my nostrils/throat" to a respiratory infection - any fluid drainage around the nostrils? But if you're giving an antibiotic already, a UTI seems unlikely, else I would suggest tylan 50.
    Sorry - hoping someone with more experience with illnesses will see your post....
