Hello! I've been battling some kind of issue/infection with my Polish Hen for almost a month now. My observation is that she does great while being [cool] misted with non-activated Ozine and backslides when I stop. I've done this twice now and have gotten similar results both times: Bring the sick bird in the house; cool mist with Ozine 3 times a day for 5-7 days. ALL symptoms of problem clear up. Hungry & eating normally, talking, good color, poop is normal, interested in escaping the cage - all-in-all, seems like she's back to a healthy chicken. Stop the treatments - she continues to do well for about 3 days and then the decline starts again. By day 5, we're back to: Green poop that smells like a sewer, eating less, weakness, lack of coordination, flicking her head, etc. The first time I put her back in the coop as soon as she seemed better. This time I kept her in after stopping the treatments so I could observe and be sure. I'm glad I did because after about 3 days, here we go again. I'm leaning towards this being fungal in nature - it seems stubborn and her symptoms seem to match with a lot of what I've read. My vet doesn't think so but to be fair, it was a short visit AND I had started her on the Ozine 2 days prior to the visit and she had already bounced back from almost dead. The vet visit resulted in 3 daily injections of antibiotics, and injected vitamins. I then kept the Ozine going until I put her back in the coop. I reached out this second time (after treating her for 5ish days with the mist) and the vet asked me to keep the mist on, but remove the Ozine because he didn't think it was fungal. When he was here he mentioned that the humidifier wasn't a bad idea, but that was about it. He didn't think the Ozine was necessary then either. I didn't follow his advice of keeping the humidifier going without Ozine because I fear that if it's fungal, moist air alone could make it worse. I did however stop the misting altogether after 7 days and she continued to do great for another 3 days and then started to decline again (as described above.) My questions: What is the inactivated Ozine doing? Is it simply inhibiting the growth of whatever this is and allowing her own body to get stronger? If so, any experience on how long I'd need to keep this up? (obviously 7 days isn't enough) Is this enough evidence to continue down the fungal infection path and should I perhaps move on to something a little more aggressive? Does anyone have experience misting with activated Ozine? Copper Sulfate in the water? Is there some other OTC fungal medication that I should use in support of or in stead of the Ozine? Might there be validity in the humidity alone being the key to recovery? Summary: She had lice (treated and gone just prior to these issues) Went into her first [hard] molt Stopped laying Started exhibiting illness: weakness, lack of color, some watery/greenish sewer-smelling poop, lost her "top bird" status, stretching her neck up and opening her beak; feverish; "flicking" her head; walking upright, then going down but continuing to walk, then back up again (that one could be molt?) clear fecal treated with Ozine and I feel like it saved her life; then treated with antibiotics and vitamins - in the house for about 6 days with extra protein to assist molt Did good in coop for about 3 days and then started to decline again Brought her back in, started the Ozine and after about 5 days poop went from green to brown and stopped smelling so bad. Kept it going for another couple of days and then stopped but continued to keep her in the house. 3 days later, the poop was stinky, green and watery, she lost her color, and interest in food. Watched her for another day and still the same. Put her back on the Ozine and within 24 hours she started feeling better and her poop started improving. Normal diet is organic layer pellets; organic layer mash. While she's been inside, she's also getting either scrambled egg or tuna to support this hard molt. I also gave her some sprouted wheat and she gobbled it up. ACV/garlic; Probiotics; RopaPoultry get rotated in water supply Treats are dried meal worms; black-oil sunflower seeds; dried bugs Pacific northwest - we had a very wet end of summer/start of fall. Lots of mold to find while scratching around in yard.
