runny water and bubbly eyes.
I usually use Baytril, any other reliable sources for this treatment iz not did like this. Bird has runny nose, and eyes have small air bubbles. Tend to not eat as much as it normally does also.
i had the same thing with my bird (no food only water in stomach). what i did?i was pin a small hole at its crop then i drain it out. give it some med hope it help you 2 CURE.
FROM THE ROST.
SYMTOMS:-chronic enteritis-bad infection, try to catch it early
sure sign, not eating, thin breasted big time, watery stool ,greenish/white
fever,left untreatedfowl will die.
DRUGS:-amoxcillian, gentamycin,tylan 120,bactrim, baytrol
The important thing is that which ever method you decide to use, don't pick off the scales. Just leave them to come off themselves, then the new scales underneath will be perfect - but if you pick them off the scales underneath will be damaged and will never look right. You can get rid of the mites quite quickly in various ways, but it takes a long time to get the legs looking right again. Be patient!
Scarlet Oil is the medicine designed for leg mite.(OR)sulphur ointment(OR)cleaning the feet then dip it in kerosene or maybe use vaseline..?(OR)spray it with wd-40 it will do the trick..cheap too..front line spray spray on legs once a week till gone that works .
It can take a long time to fully heal, but most of the time they will eventually grow back to normal. Jjust let time take over...you cant do much to helps it.. unless u gots a peak cover...ust keep the bottom beak trimmed so it doesn't get too long.
LAYING EEGS PROBLEM?
Is she an old hen? My bro have 2 good old hen that only gave him a batch per year. Usually lay egg between March-May.(OR)Broken egg inside her, good luck if you can get it out.
ROOSTER WITH SORE TROAT?
How long do u need to give Baytril for it. if he has a throat infection!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
RED MITE :-
A most presistant parasite of poultry. The mite is normally whitish-grey in coulur, and becomes red by having gorged the blood of the hen, which it has sucked during the night. During the day time, the insects hide in the perch sockets in crevices, and in corners of the nest box. They will be will be found in clusters if many hundreds
Dullness of the birds, loss of colour of the comb and wattles owing to loss of blood, and drop in the lay.
The birds should be powdered with PYRETHEUM POWDE AND FLOWERS OF SULPHUR, or SODIUM FLUORIDE, rubbing well into the fluffy feathers under the vent and under the winds. (Pyrethrum Powder should be quite fresh, it quickly loses it's strength)
It is advised to put wet cloth over the head of the bird while applying the powder
The perches ane crevices, and the nest boxes should be scrubbed, and the whole house sprayed with either CREOSOTE or a mixture of equail parts of CARBLINEUM AND PARAFFIN.
Red mite will excist for SEVERAL MONTHS WITHOUT BLOOD. Therefore the removal from the house for period is ineffective, as upon return, the birds will once more be attacked.
If all the houses are sprayed with either of the disinectants suggested twice year, one need have no fear for of this parasitess.
Sitting hen should always be the most carefully dusted before sitting before setting the eggs, and the sitting box paint with CREOSOTE in order to be cetain that no red mite are present. Red mite have been known to kill a hen during the period of her sitting
MEDICATION AFTER FIGHT.
I was wondering what medication you guys use after a long fight? I have a bird that got into it pretty bad & now he can't stand. I've been force feeding him & giving him antibiotics (penicillinG procaine) but I'm not sure if that's the right meds. Most of the time alittle heat, wash, red-cote, rest & a warm massage does the trick but this time he's pretty bad. Anybody have any tricks? Would giving tylenol with pencillin be ok or would it be to strong? Anything is worth a shot...
You can't just buy antibiotics SC, you have to either take him to the vet or get some from a farmer or a friend - you probably just need something like oxytetracycline or penicillin.
EYE INFECTION:-in this situation i will open a penceline crystalline injection (it is in powder farm) and sprinkle it in the eye twice a day. it will be just fine in few days. takes care of all the infection and blood in the eye.
NERVE DAMAGE:- i think if the damage is done, i doubts its repairable. but im not all too sure ABOUT TREATMENT.
TREATMENT:-1. Scrap it all off with something dull.
2. Get yourself some lemon/lime and get those juice out of them.
3. put all of those juice all over the face
4. put Salt all over them all over the face then put him in really hot place.
5. couple of days, the pox should start to get black, that means it curing your bird. Good luck..
If you live in the colder states as, just put him outside in the garage. Make sure that there's no wind draft in his outside coop and he'll be fine. The colder, the better. Also put a 40-60 watt light bulb in there with him so that he doesn't get cold to the point of having frostbite.
This way, the rooster is lively and cocky with no weight loss due to the chicken pox. In a few days, if it's cold enough, you'll see that the pox would've died off and not spread out due to the coldness. Remember that once to see that your rooster have form chicken pox do it as fast as possible. I have done this with all my chicken pox roosters and they have all been cured without having any weightloss...... I don't believe in heatlamps as a mean of preventing chicken pox's growth.
TOES:-I think this is what may have caused it. I had a spike in temp for a couple hours in this batch of 5 eggs and one hatched with crooked toes. I've also read this can be caused by a Riboflavin deficiency which is also linked to birds "going down" between the 12-20 week mark.
deficiency of riboflavin
Many tissues may be affected by riboflavin deficiency, although the epithelium and the myelin sheaths of some of the main nerves are major targets. Changes in the sciatic nerves produce “curled-toe” paralysis in growing chickens. Egg production is affected, and riboflavin-deficient eggs do not hatch. When chicks are fed a diet deficient in riboflavin, their appetite is fairly good but they grow slowly, become weak and emaciated, and develop diarrhea between the first and second weeks. Deficient chicks are reluctant to move unless forced and then frequently walk on their hocks with the aid of their wings. The leg muscles are atrophied and flabby, and the skin is dry and harsh. In advanced stages of deficiency, the chicks lie prostrate with their legs extended, sometimes in opposite directions. The characteristic sign of riboflavin deficiency is a marked enlargement of the sciatic and brachial nerve sheaths, with sciatic nerves usually showing the most pronounced effects. Histologic examination of the affected nerves shows degenerative changes in the myelin sheaths that, when severe, pinch the nerve, producing a permanent stimulus that results in curled-toe paralysis.
Signs of riboflavin deficiency in the hen are decreased egg production, increased embryonic mortality, and an increase in size and fat content of the liver. Hatchability decreases within 2 wk when hens are fed a riboflavin-deficient diet but returns to near normal when riboflavin is restored. Embryos from the eggs of hens receiving riboflavin-deficient diets are dwarfed and show characteristically defective down (“clubbed” down). The nervous system of these embryos shows degenerative changes much like those described in riboflavin-deficient chicks.
Signs of riboflavin deficiency first appear at 10 days of incubation, when embryos become hypoglycemic and accumulate intermediates of fatty acid oxidation. Although flavin-dependent enzymes are depressed with riboflavin deficiency, the main effect seems to be impaired fatty acid oxidation, which is a critical function in the developing embryo. An autosomal recessive trait blocks the formation of riboflavin-binding protein, which is needed for transport of riboflavin to the egg. While the adults appear normal, their eggs fail to hatch regardless of dietary riboflavin content. As eggs become deficient in riboflavin, the egg albumen loses its characteristic yellow tinge. In fact, albumen color score has been used to assess riboflavin status of birds.
Chicks receiving diets only partially deficient in riboflavin may recover spontaneously, indicating that the requirement rapidly decreases with age. A 100-µg dose should be sufficient for treatment of riboflavin-deficient chicks, followed by incorporation of an adequate level in the diet. However, when the curled-toe deformity is longstanding, irreparable damage has occurred in the sciatic nerve, and the administration of riboflavin is no longer curative.
