In the Brooder
- Sep 20, 2013
Hi. I just got a sick Silkie from a friend. She had been treating what she thought was an eye infection from the fluff touching the eyes. I told her that I would take her since she didn't really have the time to medicate the bird properly and she wasn't getting any better. All of her birds are together, and this one was never quarantined....and all her birds at this time are healthy. I got her home and put her in a quarantine cage, but she seems sicker than I initially thought. Her eyes are stuck closed at this point, and she has a dried nasal discharge. She at first seemed kind of lethargic, but I think that may be from the stress of the car ride. I read a little on here about Tylan 50, and have sent my husband out to pick some up as well as some probios. She is on a non-medicated feed. Can you all please give me some input as to weather or not you think this is how I should treat her, or if I should do something different or add something else. I plan on keeping her quarantined for 30 days from the time she is well....will she be okay to add to my flock after she is well? Thanks in advance.
