Buff Sussex Bantam Respiratory Problem
Sadly lost one of our little BF bantams a couple of days ago. I had seen her looking as if she was straining but put it down to an egg issue. Symptoms... in early stages ... sitting down outside and moving as if she was straining.... When I finally brought her inside her comb was alternating between going very dark and looking normal. She was still eating 'special' food. When one wing drooped I thought it might be heart related... Then I listened to her lungs...... they crackled on exhilation. She was on AntiBs for a couple of days, but I guess either I caught it too late or the meds were not effective against whatever it was. Worried now though because her friend, another BF bantam also has the same sounds in her chest. She is on Tylan but I wonder how effective that will be.
