    Help!! This evening as I was checking my coop and my chickens, I discovered one of my 1 yr old RIR looking like she had just gotten caught eating an egg. Her beak was dripping with mucous. I cleaned it off with a towel and quarantined her. She did drink some water with apple cider vinegar with encouragement. I checked her an hour later and she had a small amount of mucous again. What is going on? It has been stressful lately with loud trenchers going for a few days but it couldn't be stress related, could it?[​IMG]

    She looks healthy other than the snot. I would see how she looks in the morning. If the problem is ongoing then she might need a shot of tylan 50.

    Can I get that at a feed store or tractor supply? I have a son that is a paramedic that can help me give the shot.
