    i brought one of my hens inside and she's really sick. she has a swollen eye, she's really weak and a bit tipsy. she's also really pale. what could this be? what could help her get better?

    we got her eye to open and she's starting to be energetic, but she's making a sound like we sound when we have mucus in it

    You have posted about 3 different chickens in the last couple of weeks with different symptoms of respiratory diseases. Some with bloody mucus, and swollen eyes with bad odors that sound like ILT and coryza. Have you treated any of your birds with any medications that have been recommended, or have you culled any of the sick birds? Is this bird a new one with symptoms, or one of the other 2 that you have posted about? Most respiratory diseases are contagious, and will make carriers of every one in your flock. I would urge you or your family to get one of these chickens tested or necropsied to see what you are dealing with.
