    This is Phoenix, from the day got her (about 5 weeks ago) she has shown signs of illness. (after having her for about 5 hours) She had bubbles in her eyes, and when she shook her head around, sticky liquid sprayed out and around her eyes got VERY red. I posted about this and I was told to give her back, so I took her back and they game me some anti biotic to give her. After about 1 week she got much much better. So I stoped giving it to her, but then, not too long later she got sick again, I haven't seem the liquid fly out but the bubbles and red are back. She is back on the Anti biotic but I haven't seem much improvement at all.
    Here are some photos of her red eyes:

    you can go to the advanced search and type in CRD you will find what you need including she will be a carrier and if you have other chickens with her they will end up with it too.

    at the top of your page is a bar that says search discussions,reviews, articles, & more then a blue colored search button. click on search discussions, type in CRD the hit the blue search button. it will give you past articles about the illness. it is in my flock and its not pretty.
