Birds starting to sneeze, please help.

Discussion in 'Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures' started by can you hear me now?, Jul 23, 2013.

  1. Hello all I have noticed this morning that I have a couple of my phoenix roosters sneezing. I would like to know what to give them to help along whatever they have gotten. I will also be treating for mites since a lot of the birds seem to be losing feathers. The chicken house is clean and not a lot of smell, I keep pine chips inside. I think that is about all the information I have at the moment.
  2. I gotta bump this I really need the advice befor my birds get really sick.
  3. Please, I know someone is a wealth of knowledge for treating birds with colds.

    Sneezing itself is not a problem unless they are showing other symptoms such as nasal or eye drainage or crusting, eye bubbles, facial or eye swelling, and appearing tired and puffed up. I would look them over thoroughly. Sneezing could just be an irritaion from dust, pollen, or something irritating like new pine shavings. It can be a symptom of infectious bronchitis (IB) which is a virus that has fewer of the respiratory symptoms than other diseases. If you suspect they have a disease such as mycoplasma or coryza (and they should have more symptoms than sneezing,) you can treat with Tylan 50, sulfadimethoxine (Albon or DiMox), Duramycin-10, or Denagard.
