    For home remedies you can try apple cider vinegar in the water, yogurt, extra protein (wet cat food or scrambled eggs), and some raw garlic juice, but if she acts lethargic and stops being active, you might have to move into antibiotics.

    Some of us eat unwanted roosters. Some of us doctor our flock with natural medicine. Wet cat food gives extra protein to the diet, boosting immune system response. If it is a respiratory disease, their chicken's going to need all the help it can get. No need to be rude, just trying to help. [​IMG]

    Hi mysunwolf, sorry I didn't see your post last night, wish I had. I'm going to try your remedies. hopefully we can pull her through. I'm all for culling the unwanted, we do the same. I also like the natural remedies, as we think it makes healthier chickens.

    i would think that catfood wouldnt be good on their diet but if you say it works then maybe it does!owe and i know some people raise and eat their own chickens im not against it just kinda grossed out by your detailed pics!but i guess the detailed pics are for the dummies that dont know how to dress a chicken lol!sorry didnt mean to be rude i have heard of putting garlic juice in their water though!
