    I have 10 mixed hens that are a cross between a road island red and a white breed im not sure of. Five are laying and the other five are younger hens and are not laying yet. I also have a rooster thats road island red and a plymouth rock rooster and I have some royal palm turkeys. They have been coughing and sneezing for the past few days and my female turkey has been sicker then the rest she has snot coming out of her nose. I bought some durmaycin-10 but when I was reading the directions it said not to use in egg laying hens. Im confused now because I dont know what to give them. What should I use?

    I would give them all Denegard in their drinking water. Very good product that works quickly.

    If i give it to them how long should I not eat the eggs? The turkeys poop is normal color but you can clearly see the snot coming out her nose and it looks a dark color and you can hear a raspy sound when they breath
