    This past week a hawk tried to get my millie fleur d'uccel roo and he normaly stays around a real thick sticker bush when he is out side.I heard a weird noise and went out and the hawk was trying to get to him under the bush,i only found a few of Charlies tail feathers and it took me 2 1/2 hours to get him out from under the bush and when I did I checked him over for puncture wounds and cuts from the hawk and found nothing . In the last few days he has started to have nasal discharge that is clear but also has a rattling sound when he breaths,his right eye lid was stuck together.I used warm moist compress on the eye and got it open and then put a triple antibiotic in and then gave him 1cc of penacillin in the breast muscle. I am not sure what is going on since he was fine before the hawk attack. Could the stress of the attack cause this? I have had him for about 4 months and he has always been healthy with the exception of a small growth on the bottom of his left foot. I would apprecieate any ideas out there and I will continue with the ab,injection daily for about a week and also the triple ab eye ointment. To see if this will help.
    Thanks in advance for any help or ideas.

    The penacillin won't help with that. You would be better off with Tylan. You can see how to treat with it HERE . Yes, stress can make CRD symptoms show up. You can read more about CRD HERE . Good luck!
  3. I think this may just be a stress thing. Keep him warm, isolated and up on top of something. Give him electrolytes and vitamines in a small waterer in a low concentration. Feed him his regular feed and give a bit of starter or a nice treat along with it.

    watch him and the rest of your flock for any discharge, you may have stumbled on something going around the coop.
