I had two hens that were coughing last week so I treated the whole flock to lots and lots of garlic and oregano every other day. My shipment of Vetrx finally came in so last night everyone got a dose but the cough is spreading and now I have five hens coughing regularly. It seems to be worse in the morning. The coop is very dry and dusty, despite open windows and doors. One hen, the second one to catch the cough, has mucus in her mouth when I open it. All hens are eating and drinking and running around normally. No one has swollen or bubbly eyes or nostrils. No one is lethargic and everyone who is supposed to be laying is producing normal eggs (I have 3, 4 and 5 yr old ladies who have stopped laying and are pets). I don't have a farm vet nearby who can diagnose this issue and from what I've read, antibiotics are useless anyway. Do I just let my girls die? What can I do to save them? Are they going to die? I want to spend every minute out there with them, but as a full time working mom, I can't. Is there anything anyone has done for this sort of thing that has actually worked?
