I just acquired an Isabel Lavender Mottled English Orpington pullet and a hatch mate on Saturday from a breeder I know and trust that lives up in the hills where smoke from a nearby fire was REALLY awful. The mottled pullet had a runny nose when I brought her home and seemed a bit stressed out. The discharge is clear and other than seeming a bit mellow, she is acting fine. Eats, drinks, and forages, with no other signs of illness - poop is normal, eyes are clear, and she's emptying her crop each day. SO, I'm wondering if the smoke was bad enough that perhaps she just got a bit more affected by the smoke than the other pullet? She doesn't seem to have the issue as much...or is it the beginnings of a URI? How long would it take her to recover from smoke issues? It's only been a couple days, but she does NOT seem to feel super lively. I was going to put some Vet Rx in their water, would some Nutridrench help too? I added pics just cuz she's pretty and so sweet.
