Do you have other chickens who are healthy? He may be a carrier of whatever disease he has even once he is better. Duramycin 10, oxytetracycline, Tylan, and Gallimycin are some of the commons drugs that will treat some bacterial or mycoplasma (MG) respiratory diseases in poultry. If the disease is a virus, then the antibiotic won't help, except maybe to help prevent a secondary infection. Can you describe all of his symptoms (for example: sneezing, nasal or eye drainage, rattles or wheezes, or facial swelling.) Here is a good link about the most common respiratory diseases including bronchitis, MG, ILT, coryza, and aspergillosis: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
