I've given my 3 chickens some significant dosing with Baytril over the last couple weeks, which has amazingly alleviated their long-standing cases of Mycoplasma Galliseptum. My hens' combs are now red again & they are laying for the first time in more than a year.
(I've posted info on that on another thread-- http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/618049/hens-laying-again-after-a-year-of-no-eggs-keep-up-baytril )
However, they are still sneezing. Does anyone know of a second condition they might have that could be causing the sneezing? It'd be one that Baytril doesn't cure, or the Baytril would have already fought it off.
One hen also showed Coryza a few months ago, too, but Tetracyclines cleared that up.
The last few days they've had white urates stuck on their hind end feathers from diarrhea. I'm hoping that's just from too much antibiotics being put in them lately.
A few month's ago I successfully treated the roo for a case of enteritis that had him caked with white poo a long time before I diagnosed it & treated with Penicillin injections.
I hope the 3 now have a different cause for their current diarrhea...
I am giving Oxine in their drinking water as an anti-fungal to help ward off any internal yeast infection that might try to start up in the wake of so much antibiotics. I'll keep it going another 3 days, probly.
I'll also start probiotics soon.
Unless I have to start another antibiotic
