Help! My chicken has been diagnosed with mycoplasma, and has had it for 2 months! How high are her chances of survival, and she's 6 months old. She is a Buff Orpington, she will stop growing at a year. Will it stop her growth?? I love her so much!

She may be able to live normally with antibiotic treatment when she gets ill. Just remember that she is a carrier, and she will infect any other chickens that you bring in, plus other chickens and birds in your area. She may never lay eggs at the maximum or ever be as healthy and large as she could have been without having the disease though.
