The other day I made a post about my hen Penny that became sick rather quickly. Well after a couple of days of antibiotics in the water and no improvement, I took her to the vet. While he was very nice and said he has taken care of chickens before, I don't know that he was all that knowledgable. But then again, who am I to talk about chicken knowledge. He seemed pretty confident that this was a virus and will kill her. But he he cleaned off her eyes and took some blood to be tested. I get those results in 10 days. In the meantime, I am to give her Doxycyline 2 x's a day for 10 days and hope she lives and it hasn't infected my other chickens. The visit was $100. He did say though that if Penny showed improvement and the others became ill, he'd give me more meds w/o having to bring each one in for a visit. I sure hope Penny gets better.
