    Hello guys, I have some of my chicken making a sound that is similar to a human sneezing. I caught my almost tame hand risen cock and checked his nose. It is clogged with mucus so what can I do to get rid of their cold. I never heard a chick gets a cold. Can you help?

    Chickens do get viruses and bacterial infections in the respiratory tract such as infectious bronchitis, mycoplasma, and coryza. Antibiotics such as Tylan (tylosin), erythromycin (Gallimycin), and tetracycline drugs (Oxytet, Terramycin, Duramycin) can treat bacterial infections, mycoplasma, and and secondary infections of viruses. Most of the common diseases are carrier diseases, and can come back. Here is a list of diseases with symptoms: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
