    today I noticed my easter egger was in the box this morning, then this afternoon I was going to clean everything its been so hot. Duckie was still in the laying box, I took her out and she wouldnt go by the others and she has practically clear diahrria, she sounds a little funny and has her mouth open . she ran back into the box,I got some antibiotic water out and tried to dip her beak in it but she wont drink. I am new to this, what else could I do is it cocci? or what. Are all the chickens going to get sick? is Duckie going to die? I am so worried...[​IMG]:

    Oh no. I am pretty new also so I don't know what to tell you but I am sure that someone will be along soon who will know what to do. [​IMG]

    I hope that you can get her fixed up.
