    So I bought some new chicks a week ago. After having them home for a few days I noticed they were sick. Now all my chicks and hens are sick. They have yellow stuff comming out of their nose and goopy eyes. What could this be and how do I treat it? They are all still eating, drinking and running around the crazy.

    Thanks!!

    respiratory or sinus infection i bet. you may need antibiotics to treat if it is caused from bacteria, not a virus. look it up in the search lots of info here. At least give them some electrolyte solution in theis water to help them out untill you figure out what it is, separate the sick hens from the healthy ones
