    One of my Hens had a cough about 2 month ago. I treated everyone with Oxytetracycline HCl in their water for 7 days. She was better in 24 hours.
    This morning she is sneezing.
    12 hens are out all day free and come in at night.
    Should I start the antiobiotic again?
    Love my ladies. Really hook on all your good information and just the joy shared.

    I personally use Oxine (chlorine dioxide) as a preventive against fungal, bacterial and viral infections ~ I mist in the coop, use a minute amount in drinking water 1/week, and disinfect my supplies with it.

    You might do a search on it within the forum, as this stuff is much-discussed, or check out the Shagbark Bantams website to read more.

    Good luck!
