some of my hens are ill i need help!
« on: April 26, 2010, 13:33 »
i have 5 hens and a turkey who are ill with same thing, it's affecting either their mouth or their eye or both. in the ones which their eyes are affected one eye has swollen up and filled with this disgusting puss that i can only discribe as looking like scrabbled egg, and the mouth has this gross yellow stuff in it that bleeds when you pull it off. i've isolated them all away from the rest of flock and i'm trying to treat them with Fural antibiotics, but it's been a week and they aren't getting any better, but on the brighter side they aren't getting any worse. does anyone know what this is or how to treat it, because i really don't want them to die, so please can someone help me :(

Sorry to be blunt but... got to a vet.

Whatever your girls have may not be responsive to the antibiotic you are giving them and it might need a different one.
