    My chickens have never been sick before, so I dont know what to do. I have the sick ones isolated but the infection is spreading fast. I am struggling to figure out what the cause is. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    The mucus is yellow and is all around their beak, nose and in their eyelids. They are sticky wet all over and the sick chickens have not moved at all all day. Not even a step.

    I didnt have much luck with the poultrydvm checker tool. I suppose I will take them to the vet tomorrow. I think it is coryza. They are smelling putrid and have a gurgling sound as they breath now.
