Sneezing Chicken with Snotty Nose
« on: July 08, 2009, 10:18 »
For a few days now, our friendly chicken ('Gorgious'!) has been sneezing fairly often, with a clear snotty discharge.  She is showing no sign of discomfort and is as perky as ever.  As she's in an orchard with long grass, do you think it could be possible that its an allergy as opposed to a cold? If so, any cures? :wub:

This could be microplasma, do you use ACV or any other supplements?

I agree at the first sign of any sneezing I add Apple Cider Vinegar to the water, make sure you don't use galvanised dishes and they have no acces to untreated water.
