    I think I have a pullet with Coryza. Her eyes is swollen shut and pussy, some from her nostrils too. She smells terrible. I started treating her with Tylan 50, eye ointment, etc. If she survivies and is a carrier, is it better to just put her down now? So far (3 days) no one else is showing any signs. She is, of course, in quarantine.

    It's so hard to say if you should put her down. That would be my own personal choice. I have decided not to ever treat respiratory illnesses because I believe it severely weakens your flock.
