    Hello, i have scoured the posts, searched, searched, and searched. i found some very helpful info, and some confusing as well. I know no one here wants to diagnose anything and i would never rely on that, but just seeking opinions. and yes i know there are a wide variety of opinions in such matters of sick chickens, so i'm not afraid of the good and the bad! ......

    1) What type of bird , age and weight. SPECKLED SUSSEX, APPROX 12-13 WEEKS OLD, ABOUT 1/3 LIGHTER THAN HEALTHY SISTER OF SAME AGE
    2) What is the behavior, exactly. SEEMED SLEEPY, WONT OPEN EYES EXCEPT WHEN NECCESSARY, NOW WATERY EYES AND THEY SEEM SWOLLEN, STILL EATING AND DRINKING, JUST HAS HARD TIME SEEING WHAT SHE'S DOING, NOT AS ACTIVE AS SAME AGE SISTER, NO BLOOD IN STOOL, STOOL NORMAL LOOK AND SMELL.
    3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms?APPROX ONE MONTH, NO WORSE, TINY BIT BETTER AFTER DURAMYCIN
    4) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma.NO
    5) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation.NOTHING
    6) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. EATING GROWER CRUMBLE, TRY TO GIVE PLAIN YOGURT, WATER WITH ACV
    7) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. POOP PRETTY NORMAL, ONLY ONCE SAW MAYBE INTESTINE LINING, BUT ONLY ONCE, ALL SOLID AND HEALTHY LOOKIN
    8) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? TREATED WITH DURAMYCIN IN WATER FOR APPROX 10 DAYS WITH TINY IMPROVEMENT, PUTTING TRIPLE ANTIBIOTIC OINTMENT ON EYES...SEEMS TO HELP A BIT. SOME VETRX HERE AND THERE TO UNCLOG NOSE. POLIVISOL VITAMINS, YOGURT AND ACV
    9 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet?MYSELF
    10) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help.
    11) Describe the housing/bedding in use: PINE SHAVINGS ON GROUND OF COOP, BROUGHT INSIDE YESTERDAY FOR MORE WARMTH.

    CANT GET MY PICTURE TO LOAD:( WHY CAN TECHNOLOGY SHUN YOU SO?.... I'LL KEEP TRYING EVEN THOUGH IT JUST LOOKS LIKE SHES SLEEPING

    Maybe she has some sort of sinus problem? Her eyes look a little sunken.
