    what I have is a three week old chick that has been sneezing,raspy breathing for a week. I have been treating with Duramyacin 10(antibiotics) for a week with little change. I feed medicated feed free choice and it is on pine shavings! A lady I talk to about my chicks said either its CSD(Chronic Sac disease) or phenumonia(sp?) does anyone know the symptoms of CSD and can it ever be cured and is it transferable to humans and should I humanely euthanize the said chick

    Wow it sounds bad...but I'm no expert at illnesses with chicks. I definitely would keep it separated from any other animals you have just to be sure. Plus, this will keep you bumped to the front page=) Good luck!

    There are a number of respiratory diseases, some major, some of little importance. For a respiratory infection, Tylan, Gallimycin or Baytril are the recommended antibiotics.
