    Lately our ameraucana "clea" has not been feeling well, she's been sneezing, and there has been producing snot bubbles, just yesterday she wasn't eating much or drinking, so i've been holding her to give her water with an eye dropper, and using a vaporizer to help unstuff her nose.

    If you can, give her an antibiotic called Tylan. It's a powder you can buy at the farm store, and you mix into her drinking water. This works like a charm.

    Good luck with her,

    possible crd? Tylan 50 or denagard. Seperate from the others. Listen to chest for gurgling or rasp.
