    That is for Westmoreland county. Either way your chickens have a cold. It is a respiratory infection. They make a antibiotic that can be put in the water.

    Because early treatment is important, water medication is recommended immediately until medicated feed is available. Erythromycin and oxytetracycline are usually beneficial. Several new-generation antibiotics (eg, fluoroquinolones, macrolides) are active against infectious coryza. Various sulfonamides, sulfonamide-trimethoprim, and other combinations have been successful but must not be used in layers. In more severe outbreaks, although treatment may result in improvement, the disease may recur when medication is discontinued.
    Preventive medication may be combined with a vaccination program, if started pullets are to be reared or housed on infected premises.

    tetracycline HCL @ Tractor Supply is $5.49.

    I would contact the PSU Extension office first and ask them to talk to the chicken expert
