    I am going to up-date this thread... I just learned that you can give OXYTET Injections for 4 days total. I will do my OEGB for those 4 days. Today was the 3rd injection, he is not sneezing anymore, but he has a tiny bit of crackles in his lungs yet. He will still get Tylan 50 orally for 7 days. Because this is his second round of antibiotics I am taking no chances. He is eating/drinking alot and is very frisky. I hope this info helps someone one day who goes thru this ;"my chicken has a cold" thing.......
