Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has she had these signs?

What color is the mucus?

What treatment have you tried thus far? Is she isolated from the others?

Any coughing or sneezing in the flock or with her?

Any access to toxins (ie heavy metals, plants, chemicals, etc)?
