    I have recently lost one of my brown commercial crossbred chickens to a egg duct infection which was quite sudden and was assured by the vet that it was not contagious. Now one of my other chickens are showing the same symptoms that the recently passed chickens but it does seem to be so advanced. Are there any treatments etc.

    I am very sorry for the extremely late gratitude message , unfortunately after many baytril antibiotics putting the chicken down was in her best interests as she couldn't move or properly breath :(

    Sorry for your loss. That is common with so many of the high production egg layers.
