    I just culled a hen this morning with CRD. I tried to save her as I didn't want to cull either but I had no choice. Although you may be able to treat them, There is no cure for CRD. They will alway's be a carrier and they can get sick anytime. Goodluck.




    ETA: I know you can use Tylan and Baytril. I know there are 2 more, let me see if I can find it.

  3. CRD is a hard disease to cure. Even when the choock finally get well, any stress will make them shed the virus to new chickens.

    It is SO very hard to diagnose what disease a chicken has without doing some type of culture on the bird or even a necropsy.

    Do a search on CRD on this site and you will find PLENTY of threads and discussions on this.
