In the Brooder
- May 19, 2015
I bought a hen at an auction this weekend...and I found out after inspecting her that she is sick. She was coughing and sneezing at first, and then got worse...bubbles from her nose. I went to tractor supply and bought VetRx and have been using that for 3 days now. I see no improvement. She was wheezing really bad today, so I made her a homemade tea ( I use natural remedies) chamomile tea, with garlic, Himalayan sea salt, and VetRx mix. I've been cleaning her nose and q-tipping her pallet with Vet Rx and giving her clean, fresh water. She's eating and drinking fine, no diarrhea, is lively. How long will this last? Will she get better? Eventually I have to introduce her to the flock (3 other hens). Will she get them sick too even after her sickness is over? Thanks!
