Hey everybody.... it's me again
Lesson one from a newbie. BUY VACCINATED BIRDS!!!!! Hot darn am I sick of sick chickens....
My flock is quickly contracting coryza. All of the signs are there and they're all getting it one by one. First off can I get a vote of who would treat and who would cull. I don't want to cull them I really don't. I don't mind at all having a closed flock. I don't plan on selling or swapping or getting any more birds. When we get ready to leave Australia and go back home we were going to eat them all anyway and that is only in a year or 1.5 years.
Second question for those that have cured their birds, how did you do it? Did anybody manage to do it without antibiotics? I may just bring them to the avian vet because I simply don't have any idea where to get the appropriate antibiotics here in Melbourne, we don't have a "tractor supply", and I can't seem to find any good information online and I don't have the time to drive around all over the city to find them. But I don't have endless cash to spend on them so it will depend on how much it's going to cost me to get medication for the flock. If this was their first sickness I'd have more money but after spending money on all the other problems I'm just running out.
Some advice would be very welcome. I am so burnt out on curing these birds of every known problem to chicken owners world wide. But it's a learning process I guess.
