Dawg53, your instructions were so helpful; Just used them on a 16 week Brahma I have. I know I didn't completely get her one ear cleaned out. I thought she had had enough and would check her tomorrow and get some more gunk out. If I get it cleaner tomorrow, when do I redo treatment. I lost another bird to a respiratory problem about a week ago. All my birds were put on Tylan for a week. All the remaining birds are acting very healthy including the Brahma. The Brahma has no other symptoms just the crappy ear. (no cough, eating good, etc.) I hate to start another round of antibiotics. I guess I'll wait and see if your method clears up the ear infection without the antibiotics. Any comments are very welcome. Thanks, Joan
Since your birds have a respiratory disease, they will always have whatever disease it is. Antibiotics mask symptoms, never cure. Survivors remain carriers for life. Stress can bring out symptoms again. It's possible you'll see ear infections later down the road.
