    One of my hens has symptoms of Mycroplasma Gallisepticum. (from what I've been reading on other posts). Gurgling sounds, raspy breathing. She's just been standing still most of the day. Sneezing a bit, too.

    I've isolated her, and I'm wondering - if I decide to treat her (and not cull her) should I also treat my 12 other birds that show no symptoms?

    I wouldn't treat the other hens unless they begin showing symptoms, but I don't think it would hurt if you did.

    Thank you - I think I'll treat just my sick hen, and maybe add apple cider vinegar and garlic powder to the water of the flock.
