    My white Silkie hen is sneezing and sometimes has a bubble blowing out of her nose. What's wrong and how do I fix it?

    Sorry to hear. Not much help but I would suggest to keep her warm and isolate her. I also believe (it worked for my quails) that if you feed her garlic then it'll slowly help. Hope she gets well soon!

    It's a CRD. As robopetz said, isolate your bird and keep her warm.
    When my birds get a mild CRD, I treat with Tylan powder [which you can get from a vet.] The Tylan is mixed in the water and given for 5 to 7 days. Usually it takes 14 days for a mild CRD to run its course with a bird.
    Also watch your flock to make sure no one else shows any symptoms.
    Hope she gets better =)

    VetRx drops help too. Tylan probably works better but I've been using the VetRx. You can get it at a local feed mill or if you have a Tractor Supply Store, they have it too.
