    My 7 1/2 month old hybrid has been sneezing and has a runny smelly beak, I think it could be a cold, but im not sure i also checked her crop and im certain its not an impacted crop but im a novice so I have no idea what to do [​IMG] any advice?

    Do a search on coryza. Birds infected with it have a smelly nasal discharge.

    she seems perky enough and I can't see any swelling and shes happily eating, but I think I should give her antibiotics just in case

    I agree with Key West Chick - the smell is foul and it can block their beak - get some antibiotic and it will usually clear - they can get re-infected though as this is hard to shift - best of luck
