    Interesting.
    Where do you find the vaccine?
    Does the vet do this?

    I'm sorry she is not improving. Is it possible she is having a reaction to the vaccine?

    Unfortunately ND and other contagious respiratory diseases can be hard to treat. Try to make her as comfortable as you can.

    I'm sorry about your hen.

    You may want to research your vaccine protocol. I'm no expert, but generally vaccine is administered 1day after chick hatches and repeated at 35-40days of age. It looks like it can possibly be given at 3month intervals, but usually this is large hatchery operations.
    Research will be a really good idea, vaccinating every month may be too much, and birds can possibly have a reaction to the vaccine which will make them show signs of illness.

    I agree...You might be doing things wrong...?
    Could it be the LT1 Virus? Sounds like it to me...Respiratory infection. If so? They will get better but be carriers for life...I used OXY TETRA-A...Until symptoms went away. 1 tsp. per four L. in water.
