    steve of sands poultry said it was a sinus infection. isolate the bird and get tylan powder and mix in the water. there is also the injectable kind if you know how to give shots...co-op, tsc , most feed stores should have it

    Here is a video where Frank Reese talks about what he did when his birds got MG.

    Quote:How is it working out for you ? I'm curious to find out how actual experience compares to "cut and paste" by others.

    well, all i could find mon was the duramyacin, at our co-op, she is not any better or worse, about the same. other than the side of her head swolen she seems fine. i live out in the sticks, so when my wifee gets of work wed she is going on a tylan powder hunt. her eye is open, just the side of her head is swolen. reminds you of a bad bee sting. and i would like to thank steve of sands poultry for the helpful, hands on advice. thanks

    Tractor Supply store have it, or order some from
    www.jeffers.com
    It definitely sounds like a sinus or mycoplasma infection. Tylan is great for both, or any med that is based for mycoplasma infections will work if you cant find Tylan. If mycoplasma (chronic respiratory disease) it is contagious, treat all your birds for a few days, usually takes a week or two to get over it, no fast over night cure for it
