Blue Wyandotte Rooster died

Our Blue Silver Laced Wyndotte Rooster died. We found him in the coop laying on the ground. It’s so sad. We had planned to start hatching eggs from the Wyandotte flock this spring. He was a great flock leader and took great care of all the hens. One night we saw him wrapping his wing around a hen to keep her warm on the roost. He will be missed. :(

My Favorite Rooster is Sick

Well I’ve been treating the chickens with duramycin in their water. Yesterday I noticed a few of the chickens are still getting worse. I’ve done some more research and I think my chickens are sick with Coryza. It looks like Tylan is the best treatment for this. Sending my son to Tractor Supply today and will start injections today. What a headache this has been…………….

The Chickens have a Cold

I made the mistake you always read about. I’m ashamed to type this. I bought chickens from a fellow backyard farm and did not quarantine and treat them first. Now our chickens are sick with a cold. I have researched their symptoms and it seems like they have a Chicken cold or CRD or Chicken Bronchitis or any number of other respiratory illnesses. They started getting sick about 7 days ago. I went to the feed store and invested in some antibiotics. So far I haven’t lost any but I’m worried about my favorite rooster. Dominique did not look good last night. I brought one of my favorite Wyandotte hens in and kept her in the house until she was eating and drinking. That took about 5 days. I fed her Nutridrench and the antibiotic- Duramycin. Don’t worry we are not keeping any of the eggs being layed right now. If you have any ideas for other things I can do………….. please let me know. I don’t want to lose any chickens.
