Does this sound like CRD?

    I've been noticing that 5-6 of my silkies have a yellowish nasal discharge. Two of my pullets are breathing heavily, but they do not have any other symptoms that lead to CRD. My flock all has a healthy appetite and their eyes are not watery. Is it something else? I can try to upload pictures if my camera co-operates.

    From what I've read, it could be Cholera (chronic) maybe. It's the only respitory disease that I read includes nasal discharge and heavy breathing. CRD has like nasal discharge and gasping,sneezing,coughing (no heavy breathing). No treatment to either that I know of though. [​IMG]
