Go MC! the chicks are hatchin like crazy round here now!
I have been doing more research on respiratory diseases, and am now wondering if I had MG go through. Does this sound like MG, or something else?
Back story: when I first got chickens, I rescued 2 abandoned roosters from a nearby lake in the middle of winter. I knew nothing about quarantine, so I just introduced them. Everything was fine until I introduced 15 chicks later that year. After a few weeks, I began noticing sneezing and some with runny noses. I kept a close eye on it but it was not a major thing, so I did not medicate. After about a month, it cleared up by itself and I have not had a problem since. Sometimes on a health check I'll see one with a bit of clear fluid by her beak, but only very rarely.
The funny thing, is it only affected the chicks and those roosters, none of the already established flock.
Are these the symptoms of MG, and should I do anything? Are there precautions I should take with introducing more birds in the future? Thanks.
