    Be careful giving birds human meds. Tylenol is a no-no, as is anything with benzocaine or lidocaine, which can kill them. And if he had a cough, he probably is not cured, just his symptoms relieved. Chickens get diseases that make them carriers, so if you see others coming down with what he had, that's probably why.
