Some one please, help me out here. I have a brooder full of sneezing & raspy breathing chicks. I am not kidding. It started with the older ones that were in with my ducks and now it has spread to almost everyone else. I had two that are gasping like they have something stuck in their throats. They did stop when they fall asleep. One passed since this morning. They have been on Duramycin for 3 days with more spread and no improvement. There is no eye or nose discharge. Just the sneezing and raspiness. Everyone is still eating & drinking and no one is acting cold.
I have NO idea what the heck to do! The chicks range from 5 days to nearly 3wks old. I have 150 chicks at stake - chocolates, Polish tolbunts, my restart of wheaten Ameraucanas, bantam BBS Orps... Plus more chicks in the hatcher that I have no idea what to do with!
I thought, and still think, this started with the chicks that were in the brooder with the messy ducks. Could they have brooder pneumonia and they are passing the bacteria? Or is this something else? I am concerned because of that black cockerel I got that has the clear nasal discharge and the sneeze. I have been VERY careful to wash an disinfect when I work with him. But, he's in with 3 girls and none of them are sick (all in quarantine) So, obviously that's not contagious. I've had them for 2wks and no spread.
Some, please tell me you've dealt with something like this and what you did. OMG, I hope I don't have to cull everyone.
I was going to chime in, but it seems you have a lot of good advise, in my signature I have a link to a vet that has an avian veterinarian that I went to, not sure if she is close to you or not, but they treated my girls very well.

Lets just say I'm skeptical until proven wrong.

.OMG....Hey, everyone....One of the girls just layed today!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We believe it was from thr BL, it is small & cream colored. SOOOO cool!!!
We only just recieved them Friday, and they are 5 months old, very surprised to see this! Thought it was a Wyandotte "thing" to take awhile to lay...whatever, I'm not complaining!!!!
When we took it out she started making alot of noise..I don't think she wants to share!
Congrats on the egg! I was noticing the sand you have down, how do you like that? i am using Straw in my coop? so you think the said is better for cleaning? Maybe get like a scooper to clean it out?

Ok, please explain further for me, What is for? Closing the coop to the run? I am going to be cutting my barn wall so I can open it to the run and only have the door, and need the best/easiest way to open and close the door!
