I have a miniature rooster that has a human version of the flu. He has mucus in his little nose, he isn't singing, sometimes I can hear the mucus in his throat but when I open his beak enough to get a good look it is clear of mucus or any other obstructions. He has had it for two weeks. I did not pay much attention to it because it started off as sneezing and previously one of my standard hens had been sneezing aswell but it only lasted three days with her so I thought it would go away. Also, I have a pullet that hatched out some chicks about a week ago and around the time she was on the nest to when the little chicks hatched she began to develop a strange skin thing around her eyes. It looks as if though her skin was dry and either the small feathers in the area fell out or she scratched herself to the point where she has slight and small scabs in the area. This condition IS being passed on to the little chicks and that is really bugging me. The mother and all her children are fine, active, alive but I'm concerned about the actual condition and it's effects. I have pictures of the chicks and I am going to try to upload them soon. I would like to know what each disease is, how they may have gotten it, how to make it go away, and what I can do to prevent it from happening again. Their coop is clean, I clean the poop from it on the weekends, and they always have access to food and water. Thanks in advance. EDIT: As you can see, the area has no down, I don't know if it fell or if the chick scratched it off. Same chick, other side. Another chick. This is the only boy of the bunch and I THINK he has it on his comb a little. The other side of him.
