    One of my chickens got a sickened and it seemed like a case of the sneezes and everyday a different chicken has it....it keeps getting passed around and it is really annoying and I don't know what to do. It sounds like a sneeze/ cough and they do it very often. Any ideas on what it is and what to do????

    I had some in my flock and I treated them with tylan and oxytetracycline, testing revealed mycoplasma.

    Were there other symptoms, such as watery eyes, swelling of the face or eye, rattles or gurgles while breathing? Infectious bronchitis could be a possiblity, which is a virus that has to run it's course. MG could be another.possibilty.
