    My rooster is having trouble breathing. Also have several hens sneezing. It started with one hen around 2 weeks ago. I went to the vet the other day and he gave me sulfadimethoxine to give to them. I started it yesterday, and today they have gotten worse. No running nose or bubbling eyes. still eating and drinking, but are sleeping alot. Also if I have to have my rooster necropsied. Where in West Virginia would do it?
    Thanks in advance
    Travis

    Southern States and Tractor Supply have Tylan 50 and powder. I live near Huntington, WV. Did your vet think they he had coryza? The DiMethox (Albon) is supposed to be the drug for that.
