    If you haven't already done so, you should definitely separate the affected birds from the rest of your flock. This will help reduce their stress AND hopefully keep the rest from getting sick.

    I suggest you start with tylan injectible:
    (will treat CRD as well as Coryza)
    Chicken Medications
    by Dr. James Barton and Clarence Gillihan
    ".....Bacterial Diseases:
    Purchase a bottle of Tylan 50 and several 3cc
    syringes with 25 to 30 gauge 1/2" needles. Give your hen 1 to 1 1/2 cc. of Tylan under the skin of the neck .........Continue daily injections for three days but not more than five. Withdrawal time is one month. Tylan does not have much activity against coccidia, but it is very good against Mycoplasma bacteria which is responsible for some respiratory diseases.

    To inject Tylan 50, pull the hens feathers back
    to reveal the skin on base of the the neck on her back. Lift the skin up and insert the needle gentlty but firmly into the skin just far enough to allow the Tylan to be injected. You will be able to feel it. Be careful that you do not inject yourself. Make certain that you do not push the needle through the skin and out again not injecting at all................

    Because Tylan is so powerful, it is recommended
    that you purchase some Beneficial Bird Bacteria
    and feed it to your chicken after she recovers.
    Tylan wipes out all the benficial bacteria that is normally present in a chickens digestive system.

    Also, Tylan can kill skin cells near the site of the injection so you should not use anything stronger than Tylan 50 - a stronger variety, Tylan-200 is also available at your local feed store, but this will likely do more harm than good.

    When purchasing syringes, get them from a
    local drug store. The 'human' grade needles are a little sharper than the vetrinary grade. The cost is about the same and your hen will thank you...."

    If you have OXINE this is the time to use it and mist regularly with it.

    please try this first, it has proven to work for us, brew some coffie , take the coffie grounds cool them off, make sure they are all the way cooled off, squeze the juice of the grounds over the birds eyes, repeat daily. this worked on my cat , and my nieces baby. my husbands family used this as an old remedy when they chicken farm in PR.[​IMG]
