I believe I have a respiratory infection in the coop.

    Several of my chickens have dried discharge over their nostrils and my biggest roo has just sat around for 2 days now. Eyes closed looks puffy he also has discharge and some are sneezing. I have looked on TSC's web page and I do not see anything for chickens as far as antibiotics. But the name is right. But says for hogs or goats.

    Can someone tell me exactly what I need to pick up from TSC and how to use it.

    be careful because they cold have infectious coryza, that and a respritory problem show the same symptoms.

    I had just one of mine start sneezing and had runny discharge on his face. I put him on sulmet and it helped. It seemed to come up with the change in weather. He still occasionally will sneeze but there is no discharge.

    Its that time of year! Seperate the sick ones. Sulmet is good but if it keeps up might treat with tylan 50 injectable .35cc 3 to 5 days. You can also drop it in the goopy eyes and in the mouth but best in the breast. Works great for me.
