    3 days ago my male silver Sebright died from a disease and I could never figure out what it was. His entire head was swollen and it made his eyes sink back into his head and went blind, I tried using Tylan, eye medicine, and medicine for parasites but nothing seemed to make a difference it was like a tumor growing on his brain [​IMG] the day before he died he mated with my female sebright and now she's getting sick too, bubbles in the eye, eyes sinking back, and the heads starting to swell. I think it's a respiratory problem because there is a clear discharge from the nose

    Hi,
    I am sorry for the loss of your bird and the stress you are going through with this.
    You should try Denagard. It is a liquid antibiotic that you administer in the water. You should be able to find out any info you need as well as dosing instructions by doing a search here on BYC. You should treat all of your birds to be safe and keep everyone else from getting too sick.
    I hope everything works out for you. Good luck!
