    i bought some frizzles today and I got home and inspected them and I noticed the rooster smelt weird, I smelt near his nose and it reaped like death, I have them in quarantine, should i quarantine the two hens from him? The hens seem very healthy and he does too, besides his nose. I am scared this is corzya :(

    Coryza symptoms are: swollen head, comb and eyes swollen shut. Also crusty discharge from nose and eyes. It sounds more like sour crop to me.

    Edited as I've misread, as they all came from the same place (I assume) and have been in contact with each other already there probably isn't a lot of point separating them. They probably already have anything he does, but if you have the ability to separate them in can't hurt either.

    We cullEd the sick rooster and one of the hens, she was showing signs, but another hen, that came with them probably just met them, she is way prettier and I am pretty sure she is not sick so we have not culled her but are still watching

    Can you breeds chickens with corzya? I know the chicks will have it but just wondering
     
  6. Any flock that has coryza should not sell or give away any chickens.
