    I've never experienced this, but from what I've read, this doesn't ever go away. They are carriers for life.

    Please see my post on this subject. Even if it is not specifically corzya, the treatment options I discuss will still help. If they do have something like coryza, they could in fact be carriers for life and exposing them to any other chickens will result in that chicken getting sick. Learned this the hard way and lost one chicken through the learning process! Now I have a flock of coryza carriers and can only increase my flock through hatching.

    Hope this info helps!
