JU­LIAN NOR­TON, the pop­u­lar star of Chan­nel 5’s The York­shire Vet, has re­vealed his un­usual treat­ment for sinusitis in chick­ens.

In his reg­u­lar col­umn for The York­shire Post, the TV star and au­thor sug­gests that in ad­di­tion to the tra­di­tional routes of med­i­ca­tion, af­fected birds would ben­e­fit from some time in a steam room.

Mr Nor­ton came up with the idea after see­ing birds with sinusitis so se­vere that their eyes were glued shut with gunk, pus and mu­cous.

His un­con­ven­tional treat­ment in­volves bring­ing af­fected birds into the house and cre­at­ing a makeshift steam room in the bath­room by turn­ing the shower on hot and then al­low­ing the steam to re­lieve the prob­lem enough for the birds’ eyes to re­open.
