    Maybe I should try de worming him first? Not really eating, drinking a tad. I got him inside for today as cold as it is

    wash his nostrils first of all. you can do it with warm water, even better if you put some acv in water. give him antibiotics as well. we should always treat animals while they are still eating. once they stop eating it is usually too late. good luck

    I would not just randomly start giving it antibiotics...why don't you put your symptoms in PoultryDVM's chicken symptom checker and see what it could possibly be?

    you should ask a vet or in the shop where they sell medicines. I live in greece so we have different names for medicines. i give mine erythromycin, prescribed by my vet.

    Yeah it was pretty vague but heck his symptoms is pretty vague, did fine yesterday then this. As long as hes drinking water I'll treat him. Hes got too much of a good personalty not too. I'm sorta wondering if he dose have those worms if they caused another infection or something of another hmmm.
