Looking for some help with a sick chicken. She seems to have an upper respiratory infection. Rattle in her breathing. Does a head bob to swallow and she has white liquid draining from her beak (not nose and eyes look normal. no swollen face either) Ive got her isolated and on some antibiotics. Trying to determine what i should do next..... Does having any sort of respiratory issue mean she is a "carrier" and will infect the rest of my hens OR is it just having Coryza that does that? I was hoping to get more chicks this spring but if I treat her and keep her then I will have to have a closed flock. Any and all advise welcome.
