    How long have they been on antibiotics?

    We need more detailed info on where the chickens are housed, are they in a full time run or do they free range, what feed etc to be able to help you. How long have they been sick and how did this begin?

    Hello! This could be something more serious, but I have found that LA-200 injectable works wonderful. You can buy it at your local tractor supply store. I use a #22 syringe 1 inch long. You can use 1/2 cc for every 10 pounds, so if the bird is smaller, I just fill to the first line. Take a pinch of skin on the back of the neck and just stick it in enough to get the head of the needle in...then administer. Use rubbing alcohol to clean syringe for next bird. We cleaned out our barn and stirred up a lot of dust...between that and the change of weather, we got a few of our flock with runny noses. We adminstered LA-200 for 3 days, once daily and everything is healthy. Good luck!

    They are housed in a non insulated building and they have been sick for about 10 days and on medication for about 9 days. They only get let out side on nice days the weather keeps changing around here its been from the 30 to the 60s.

    Is it very dusty or do you have straw in the floor of the coop that could have mold growing in it perhaps you don't see? Those can both be big problems.
