Blind Brahma Pullet
by Suzanna Innerhofer
I have 3 Dark Brahma pullets. I noticed 3 days ago 1 was really skinny, pecking at the air above the feed, and the dominant pullet was trying to direct her around to get to the feed. I brought her in and quarantined her away from the other 2 and started her on some oxytetracycline. I took her outside for a little this morning to see if she might be improving but she's not. She's been alert, talking and eating with help. I have to gently open her beak and drop a piece or 2 of food on her tongue then let go for her to get more than 1 or 2 pieces of food in 5 minutes. What is wrong with her? Her iris is a normal golden brown color and her pupils stay dilated. Her eyes also look watery like she has allergies. She's also having watery diarrhea but that could be because of the antibiotics. I'm going to add some probiotics, and electrolytes this evening.
