    oh, I hate to tell you this, but that sounds/looks like coryza....that stuff you are discribing as tissue on the nostrils looks more like mucus plugs. You should do a search on BYC, and see what you find...coryza is a nasty bug...the outlook is not good. Especially if you have other birds.

    I might add something to that effect in your title...you may get more oppinions and knowledgable people to look at your post that way.

    Coryza. Severe case that took some time to develop to this level. Put the bird down and treat the rest of your flock, soon.

    if i treat the rest of the flock they still have the diseases right so most ppl say kill the whole flock and dose it affect other birds

    You should have the birds tested to know for sure what they have, then decide if u should cull.

    Quote:I agree. I think you should do this immediately. Coryza is nothing to mess around with.

    I understand that and ty my other questions is that i removed the bird as soon as i seen symptons so is the rest fine and won't be carriers so i still can introduce other birds and they will be fine

    I think that if they were exposed to the coroyza birds, they could be carriers even if they don't come down with a full blown case of it.​
