    I have this new three month old baby chicken. She is a Sussex cross brahma. She has some sort of cold or something. She has a runny nose and a foul smell coming from nose. She is eating and drinking normally. She does not have anything wrong with her eyes which is a good sign.
    Does anyone know what's wrong with her? Please let me know.

    Sounds like sour crop. In the search bar put in treating sour crop and there is a bunch of articles on symptoms and treatment. Good luck with her. Glad you joined.

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] I'm glad you joined us.

    It sounds like she has a respiratory disease to me. I suggest posting in the Emergencies section for more help: Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures

    Good luck with her!

    It sounds like your bird has a respiratory disease. I'd be sure to post in the Emergencies section of the forums, which Wyandottes7 linked to.

    Good luck with her! Respiratory diseases can be somewhat difficult to treat.
