Sick cygnet
Date: 11 January 2016

Hello, I just purchased an Australian black Cygnet from a poultry show yesterday. I didn't notice yesterday but i believe it's sick. It has runny eyes primarily. I can barely feel through all the down but it feels thin too. It's acting pretty much ok and drinking but not eating much. Lays down a lot too.

They said it's about a week old bit it looks older than that to me.

What do i do? I called the lady who sold it to me and ask her, and she didn't know what to do.

Please help. Should I put it on antibiotics? If so, what kind? Thank you!
