    [​IMG]I need help. Really worried about one of my girls. I noticed that he face started swelling up a few days ago and one of her eyes is now completely shut. I started giving her vitamins and cleaned her coop. I picked her up today and noticed that she has a runny nose. I want her to get better but I need to know what I need to do and how to help. Please help me. I want my girl to get better.[​IMG]

    Not on the mouth as much. She does eat and drink but both of her eyes are now completely shut. It's horrible!

    Do you have a vet?

    With that much swelling she more than likely needs antibiotics. Your vet can prescribe something much better than what you can usually find at the feed store.

    I don't. We've never had pets till now so Ive never taken them. I tried to contact one but no luck. I was just trying to figure out what was wrong with her and see if there anything I could do meanwhile to make her feel better.

    Thank you guys for your sympathy. Some people just don't understand that she wasn't just a chicken or a pet. My daughters and I loved her very much and we'll miss her very much.[​IMG]
