    I have a Cochin bantam hen that was sick with some sort of "chicken cold".I have given her Tylan-50 .25cc for three days the first time waited a week and she was still sick so I gave her a second round of tylan-50 and she still has a little bit of a cough.She has also been given eletro's and vitamin water and she loves yogurt.She acts like she is feeling better but cough's.Does anyone have any good ideas?Would Vet-rx help?I don't want to lose her as my family and I have become very attached to her.

    Consider a vet if there is one near you that will see chickens. We have gone to a vet this week with a hen as well. Good luck!

    you may just have to ride it out, sometimes if it is viral, antibiotics wont help.

    If you are that attached to her, you might consider taking her to a vet. Also make sure she is warm. At least room temperature, if not warmer. A hospital cage works wonders for sick birds. The idea is to keep her quiet and stress free.

    don't panic, I had one get a cold and she recovered just fine within a week, all I gave her was epsom salt and water (1 TBLS per gallon) I gave it to the whole flock just in case they had it also (they didn't), I don't remember were I read about it but it seemed to work.
    She was coughing and sneezing for 3 days.
