    I have a few chickens with runny nose. They are all eating drinking pooping normally. No watery eyes, no sneezing...just the runny noses. What should I do??

    I would imagine the chickens need some help in the matter of building up the bodies
    wet mash probiotic
    I personally would give them some
    **wet mash probiotic with vitamins in it
    3 tbsp of dry crumbles
    1 tbsp of yguart
    5-1/2 tbsp of milk any kind
    add the vit's to this and feed him this
    twice a day
    and see if they will get better

    **ALSO this is important to do
    buy a bottle of VETRX
    and put vetrx on their heads and under their wings
    and 1/2 tsp daily down their throat
    and 1/2 tsp in their drinking water

    do this daily till the birds are not having moisture at their nose
    also keep them away from other and other birds
    do their chores last as you can carry it on your shoes and clothing and hands to the other chickens

    you can get vetrx from smiths poultry supply

    How is the ammonia smell in the coop? I always suggest that first. I had a similar problem and i asked on here. I hadn't noticed but the bedding was getting a ammonia smell to it. Someone on here suggested i check and after i replaced the bedding my girls went back to normal. It started with a runny nose and then sneezing......

    Check that first.
