    My chickens had a respitory infection and they all got treated with Tylan. My question is can I buy and sell birds or do I have to have a closed flock?how do I stop my chickens from getting it again?

    It depends on what type of respiratory infection it was.Most of them will stay in the chicken and when in times of stress it will come back.Can you describe the symptoms?
