    Respitory Illness, Bubbly Eyes and Coughing

    My bantams have been so healthy this year, they avoided all coccidia and other deathly things. Today I walk into the bantam enclosure, and I'm seeing a couple with bubbly eyes, and several more are coughing. Especially so when they're drinking. And so far only one I can see is sitting on the...

    Have you ever had a flock with a respiratory disease?

    Have you ever had a flock with a respiratory disease that was incurable? If so, did you keep or cull the birds? The reason I ask is because mine might but I'm curious about others. I've been worried about this all day and am going to have mine checked.
