    We just came home from the fair and it looks like our rooster that we kept home got sick while we were away. His crow sounds pitiful. I'm pretty sure it's a Respiratory Infection, and I have Terramycin in my possecion. I'm anxious to use it. The 4 month olds that are part of his flock don't look sick at all. But if this is something that is going to be caught, I think they would already have it. I just want to treat everyone. Can they have the antibiotics even though they're young?

    Our ICU is being used for quarantine right now, on seemingly and most likely healthy birds. (From the fair). Separating the rooster would be mean putting uneffected birds in danger.
