Hi folks! I am a brand new hen keeper-we just got four ladies on Monday. On Wednesday morning, I noticed that one of the Americaunas had bubbles in her eyes and was raw and sore around her eyes.She had a little bit of snot which I cleaned out and there hasn't been anymore. I called the lady we got her from and she said it was probably a cold from a rain that we had this past weekend. Then I went to our local feed store and showed a picture to the lady that works there and she said she thought it was pox. She suggested Duramycin. I've been giving it to all four chickies since Wednesday evening and the one girl doesn't look much better (this morning when I cleaned her up, there were no bubbles but instead a bit of slime! I wiped it out and there hasn't been anymore) and I think the other Americauna might be getting it...both are scratching at their eyes. Neither are weezing, coughing, or sneezing and the two silkies we got both look fine. Everyone is eating well and running around all over the yard, catching bugs shaking their tail feathers. I don't think much they are drinking much of their Duramycin spiked water, though. So, a few questions: does this seem like pox to you? If so, is Durmycin the right thing for them to have (I have just read on this forum that there is no medication neccesarry for pox)? If Durmycin is what they need, how the heck can I get them to drink it? I tried mixing some OJ in, but they are not interested. Thanks so much for any help you can provide!
