    I have a pullet that has had a sticky nasal discharge for about a week. She is acting very healthy though. Eating, drinking, and running around her pen after bugs. Bright eyed, and bushy tailed. I wipe her beak off in the am after she goes outside, and she is fine. No gooky stuff around her nostrils. In the morning though, she has little bits of food, and bedding stuck in her nose from the sticky, clear discharge. No gasping, or coughing. Just the occasional sneeze. Should I keep her isolated? She is just miserable, and misses the other girls. I have read other posts, but nothing seems to fit my situation. I have not given her any meds because she is not acting sick at all. Any advice would be great.

    Anyone know? She is a sweet girl, and I would like to do what's best for her.

    How is your chicken doing? I have a 20 week old silkie cockerel with the same problem.
