    Newbie to chickens.

    I bought 3 chickens a couple weeks ago, 3 different breeds. Anyway, 1 had a runny nose (i thought it was the transport, chenge of scenery etc) then she had a nose bleed and i rang the nursery and took her back. She was fine apart from that, bright eyed bushy tailed shiny feathers, eating and drinking very well. The other 2 were very healthy and no signs of problems.
    Last night 1 of the others appeared to have a wet beak and this morning i wiped it and it was a little slimy. I have a dreadful feeling that i am going to lose all of them. I dont have anywhere i can quarantine any of them so it will be a case of just riding it out.
    i noticed someone had mentioned Apple Cider Vinegar in the water as an aid, could this help at all or not??

    Thanks [​IMG]

    ACV is all around a good product - but this sounds like it's respiratory.

    A nose bleed? That sounds awful!
