    I have diagnosed my hens myself. I think they have Coryza. This is terrible. Has anyone had 1st hand expeience with this?? I have read everything I can find. Hopefully I am on the right track.

    I have quartined all the ones that are showing symptoms. I have given them shots of LA 200 anitbiotic. I am using oxine in their water and hoping for the best. Their eyes are doing better, but they still have the cold symptoms.

    I hope they are not a forever carrier. I would like to add to my flock again in the spring but I am afraid of running the risk of mine getting the new chicks sick.

    All of this because my daughter brought home a bird that was sick. Not knowing of course. Accidents happen but it still doesn't make me feel any better. I run the risk of losing all of them.

    I appreciate any advice you amy have for me.

    I dont know what la200 is but since you gave them meds, theres not much else you can do but wait and see. I would have used tylan50 injectable or erythromycin, but again, I am not familiar with LA 200. Just dont give any other meds for fear of overmedicating. Best of luck to you.

    LA 200 is a Oxytetracycline Antibiotic.
    I see some improvement. I like the injectable because I know they are getting the med. In the water I never know, the hens drink from the horses water sometimes.

    I have evicted them from the coop until it dries out. I had 18 of rain with the storm. Don't need any more difficulties.

    Thanks
