    I got 4 hens from a sale Saturday & yesterday two started squinting one eye & it is weeping yellowish fluid. I've looked up several different diseases & possibly looks like Infectious Coryza. What is best way to cure this??[​IMG]

    Smell the face and eyes. If there is a stinky smell, it is probably Coryza. Try giving Sulfadimethoxide for 5 or 6 days and see if this doesn't clear it up.

    I am not sure you can get this at TSC. But you can check in the horse section or along the back wall. I have a feed store that carries a lot of my meds. You can also get this stuff on line.....http://www.jefferspet.com/di-methox-soluble/camid/LIV/cp/A2-DA/

    I have never ordered from this place, but this is an example of one place you can get it. Google around for other places that might be easier for you. :)
