    My whole flock has (Coryza) they are on baytril once a day but will be switching to bacterin injections from monday every 2 days.. My vet is very good and is going to help me best she can.
    I think i know deep down there going to have to be culled! Im trying everything possible.. I have 15, i had one with a swollen eye and managed to cure it with bathing it every 4 hours with warm water & eye drops so i put her back out today after been in house for 3 days and ended up bringing another one in but this one is limping! When will it end! Am i being cruel keeping them alive... I know i cant bring any new ones in or out....
    There are 5 that arent showing any symptoms at all but i know they have the desease.. Ill keep trying best i can...

    I'm sorry to hear about your chickens, but give the antibiotics a chance to work. I hope they get better soon.

    I would post "Please help with Coryza" under Emergencies, and see if members will give advice or tell you their experience.

    Feel like im getting somewhere today [​IMG] they have finished there 3 day course of baytril and ive just recieved my 2 day course of injections! Apparantly the vet has recommended (Tylon) as it treats MG and Coryza.. The chicken with the swollen eye is eating & drinking and her eye is wide open now [​IMG] .... My father in law is just about to start injecting my 15 chickens.... The vet recomends 2 days of injections but as i now have a 100 ml bottle does anyone think i should do it for 3 days to be on the safe side?..

    That depends. If you are newbies with injections, it may be a good idea. If you know they all got an injection perfectly, then , no.
