It started with sneezing watery eyes with bubbles and gurgling in their throat. This happened after a cold snap. I had used vet rx and used a suggested Tylan 50 shot. Clorox the cages and used barn Lyme after cleaning the ground. The sun came out and they all seemed better then blackberry winter hit and some are acting yucky again. Help I can't get this mess gone. I have also had a few deaths

Welcome to BYC!

So sorry about your flock. Sounds like it could be either MG or Coryza. You will need to get them on some Sulfadimethoxine or Duramycin in the water. Both of these issues are not completely curable. You can get them thru this spell, but they will remain carriers for life. And when their immune systems get low, it can come back on them.

You can also post this in our emergency section for more help with this....

Good luck and I hope you can get your flock back to good health soon.
