    One of my silver laced wynedotts seems to have a cold! she sneezes a lot and I think her lungs are filled with mucus. She also breaths mostly through her mouth isntead of her nostrils. Is there any kind of antibiotics I can give her or will she just get over this on her own??

    I had the same sort of thing this spring... You need to get her on injectible Tylan or Baytril ASAP. She will not recover on her own. Vets usually have Baytril--1 cc for about a 3-5 lb. bird. Inject into breast muscle (alongside keel) 1 time per day for 3 days. I used Tylan and it worked wonders. Best of luck.

    Quote:How much Tylan is recommended? Is there another way, besides injection, that it can be given?
