    Some of the young chickens had an upper respritory infection (sneezes) which was treated with Duramycin 10 (tetracycline) and cleared up.

    Now 2 of the Sebastopol goslings who hatched 5/17 sound like their nose is stuffy, I did see one sneeze twice, but otherwise are eating and drinking normally. Can they be treated with duramycin as well? If so what is the proper dosage for geese? If not what should be used?

    They are on pine bedding inside the house at night, grass outside during the day. They are eating purina flock starter and grass clippings (we don't treat the grass with anything)
    Thanks,
