    So it started yesterday, my turkey poult started having a runny nose, eyes, and face swelling. Today my pullet started having a runny nose, eyes, and is sluggish. She is also not eating or drinking much. I just noticed my hen has a runny nose also. Please, Please tell me this isn't Coryza [​IMG]

    I can't tell you what it is, but when mine got it I gave them .5 cc Tylan 50 in the back of neck for 5 days. This was when they were 8" tall. They are 2' now. About 3 1/2 months.

    I am not sure of there ages, I an only guess. The turkey is just under or about a month. The pullet is about 3 months old or so. The hen is about a year old. I just checked, there are 4 other chicks that seem to have the start of a runny nose [​IMG]

    If there is a bad/foul odor about the head/nostril area, it's coryza. Here's a link, you can scroll down to coryza and read up on it. If you decide to treat instead of cull, you can use sulmet.
