My 6yr old Isa Brown has had vent gleet for over a week now but a couple of days ago she started getting very wobbly on her feet and now only sits down. She did eat a small amount of food when I put it directly in front of her but I had to give her some water with an eye dropper. I've been washing her behind to clean the build up of yellow & white discharge & trimmed her feathers a bit. Her comb is still red but droops over to one side & her eyes seem clear but not really sure what's going on....Any ideas?

Has anyone had a problem with maggots on the underside of a hen? No wound or open sore and skin looks normal. She is approx. 1 1/2 to 2 yrs old Rhode Island red and has been laying good. The concentration of maggots was considerable. Cannot find anything else wrong except the area had a loss of feathers and slight diarrhea.

Treating chickens is extremely important when raising chickens. Your article shared a lot of experiences for me, I will always support you. thuoc ga da

I have 2 young hens, one a silkie bantam and one a lavender bantam. I recently lost out silkie cockerel of a respiratory infection but my hens were fine for a few weeks. I then introduced 2 millie fleur bantams and one had a sneezy cold so I gave her the left over antibiotics for the cockerel and she recovered. Next day my 2 original hens got really ill crackly breathing and snoyyt face and the lavender has a swollen. I took the other 2 millie fleurs back and am treating my 2 with Baytrol. The lavender is still lethargic with closed swollen, the silkie better but still a bit snotty. This is 4 days into the antibiotic. These hens are only about 4 months old all from same breeder.

I have 7 chicks 5 weeks old (3 marans and 4 leghorns). One of the marans is much smaller than the others, eats less and has a red, swollen sore looking neck. It also seems to be itching. Could this be a parasite, or is it more likely that the others are bullying it? Hope you can help

Recently lost a healthy chicken for no apparent reason. Seemed broody at first so kept lifting out of nesting box, next day dead. Same now happening with another, only difference when I lift her out of box, she eats loads as she she hadn't been getting out of box to feed. Other birds attack her as she shows a weakness. I keep my coop clean, and spray with poultry disinfectant weekly after a clean. Could it be that?

We have recently (a week ago) obtained 5 young hens of different variations, I have just noticed that one of them seems a bit off? She is breathing with her beak open as if she is taking big breaths and every so often makes a loud noise. She seems to be drinking plenty and is scratching around. Other than this she seems healthy but just not quite right. Am I being too panicky or is this normal. All the others seem fine? Thank you. Julie
