Hi all! This question has been on my mind for a long time. I have a rooster that got this disease two weeks ago. The rooster hardly had any symptoms, and I got him treated very quickly with antibiotics (he only had bad breath and mild labored breathing). He is all healed now after being on antibiotics for a week. I have done a lot of research, and found that some websites act like a chicken that has had Coryza will “maybe” be a carrier for “long periods of time”. Others say there is no hope. I’m looking for some personal experience and advice. Has anyone ever kept a chicken that had had Coryza and been successful with it? My hope is that the bacteria in my rooster never had time to really fester, and that I destroyed it quickly enough to possibly eliminate it for good. I plan to keep my flock in apple cider vinegar and also to add some copper sulfate one a month. Any advice form experience would be great!! Thanks!
