    Viral respiratory diseases in chickens are not curable, only mamageable, and often are passed to the chick through the egg. I would have one tested by the state vet or an ag college to see which disease I had. I would not be hatching from this flock.

    I agree with flockwatcher. It's too risky, sorry.
