    Bought 8 new chickens at a sale, quarantined them for 30 days. Nothing appeared to be wrong and I noticed no symptoms to worry about. Turned them loose with the rest of my flock including a pair of peafowl. Went to the shed to open it this morning and one of my favorite girls was dead. I didn't notice anything wrong with her the day before. I have several chickens sneezing including my peacock- who just got his second eye feather. Mouths open. Otherwise they seem just fine. I'm just sick!!! What can I do?? Does anyone know what this could be?? I swear I will never buy someone else's birds when I don't know where they came from again!! Ugggggg...

    if they are sneezing you need to get some tylan 50 and give them 1/4cc each that is the best thing you can use it treats resperatory problems. and yes it works

    TSC. I'm not very knowledgeable, yet, but you can give it orally, perhaps on a favorite piece of bread you're sure they'll eat, or injectable. Anyone else?

    Wondering if I have to inject it or feed it? I will get it tomorrow.. just not sure... how much?? I have 32 birds... do I treat them all?? Do I give the full grown peafowl the same amount that I give the tiny banties?? I don't want to lose anymore. [​IMG]

    I raise bantams also and that is all I use it comes in a bottle and it will last a while. yes I would treat them all just to be safe. however I have never tried to give it orally I always inject mine to assure they are getting it

    How much for the bantams and peacocks since they are so different in size??? How much do you give for yours and maybe I can post in the peafowl forum? What about normal size chickens?

    I give my bantams 1/4 cc each bird the recommended dose for large chickens is 1/2 cc I dont know about the peafowl but if it was me I would use the large chicken dose on him
