    possible mycoplasma in 4 week old silkie taking Baytril

    Even at slightest gurgling and wheezing, you'd just eliminate correct? as soon as I saw slightest symptoms I separated the bird and cleaned and sanitized the brooder and none of the others have symptoms so far.

    Also, is Mycoplasma spread more easily when the bird has symptoms instead of asymptomatic?

    possible mycoplasma in 4 week old silkie taking Baytril

    Then thing is that everything is probable, not sure. The vet doesn't even KNOW if it's Mycoplasma, but he just said there is nothing in the digestive so it probably is. Still torn about it, but if one of them has weaker immune system probably safest to eliminate from the flock now, even though...

    possible mycoplasma in 4 week old silkie taking Baytril

    Well, these guys are my pets now so I'm just curious, if one of them has it is it 100 percent sure they all have it because they were raised together for 4 weeks? My only concern is whether I should give the sick one back to the breeder once he recovers or put him back with the siblings. (the...

    Thank you for the links! I'm not interested in getting other chicks, and the 8 of them seem perfectly healthy for now, so my only concern is if the sick one (now much better!) goes back in the flock when he is completely recovered will it make any difference in the future? or not, because they...

    possible mycoplasma in 4 week old silkie taking Baytril

    The approach seems very different here in Mexico, they treat the birds with antibiotics and put them back in the flock! The vet said it's not a problem, and the breeder just refers to it as a "cold" and says he will take the bird back if I don't want it. I'm just really torn because the sick...

    possible mycoplasma in 4 week old silkie taking Baytril

    Yucatan, Mexico. The vet said no so I called the main lab and they said maybe call the government lab in Mexico City, I've written them but that's too much, nobody does it they said. Does that mean most of the chickens here might carry mycoplasma ?!? Strange!

    possible mycoplasma in 4 week old silkie taking Baytril

    I just confirmed that nobody in this region does testing for mycoplasma, why do they treat this disease so differently here? The vet also seems to think its common and not a big deal...

    possible mycoplasma in 4 week old silkie taking Baytril

    So do you think if the chicks were in the same brooder for 4 weeks, it's not a problem for the other chicks if I return the sick chick after it recovers? I'm not planning to get more chickens. I just want to keep the other 8 safe. I'm not sure they offer mycoplasma testing here from last time...

    possible mycoplasma in 4 week old silkie taking Baytril

    Great, thank you, so since the chick is still so young I guess I won't have to worry about egg withdrawal unless he or she gets sick again as adult? The vet is not a poultry or livestock doctor but exotic pet doctor specializing in birds.
