    One of my chickens is sick and I found the link above. I think it's Necrotic Enteritis. That best describes her symptoms.
    My question is, it says it needs to be treated with antibiotics. I have heard they have them some TSC that are ok for chickens, but is NE sensitive to them? How much do they cost and what are they called? Are they for chickens or just ok for them?

    ANY info on TSC antibiotics is helpful! I need it ASAP. Thank you in advance for all your help.

    I got a packet of Duramycin at TSC. It was only I think $5.00 or so for the powder that you mix in water. It is a broad spectrum type antibiotic, I think. I have it on hand in case I need it. Not sure what else they carry. You might do a search on here for antibiotics and see what's out there then compare to what TSC carries.

    No problem. I have it bookmarked. ;)



    I got Duramycin. I have that and corid in her water to cover all my bases. She's doing pretty well. Her appetite has picked up and she's put on a little weight.
