Well, I went to buy some pullets and found the poor girls being kept in horrid conditions. My heart was breaking as I left with 5, yet there were many more needing help. So what started as a flock expansion has turned into a bit of a rescue operation. The conditions were mud, no shelter, over crowding, dirty water, barely any feeding. I bathed them all up and noticed lice on a few so I plan to dust them and quarantine them. Their stools also have blood so I have started corid as a precaution. One is sneezing and has a runny nose. Not sure if this is a product of te cold damp conditions, or wter and soap in the nose from having a bath...hoping and pretty sure it is not coryza(sp?) Basically I want to know what sorts of things to watch for in birds coming out of a situation like this? Could a runny nose be from the conditions? Can I feed them as I would my healthy birds? If they have been malnourished I dont want to overfeed them! Any help would be appreciated!
