    I was given some adult birds by someone who was supposed to bringing me eggs. He was coming into town so brought them. My birds free range so I did the best I could as far a quarantine at a moments notice. I put them in a dog kennel. Well a few days after they arrived I noticed the rooster lost his voice. Then I started hearing the sneezing. Ugh. I was hoping it was just something from being transported 400 miles in a crate in the bed of a truck. Than they started getting worse and some of my free ranging birds are sneezing including turkeys.

    What respiratory problems can cross between chickens and turkeys (I do not see anything in the ducks or guineas)? I really do not want to cull my entire flock as I have over 100 birds.

    Thanks
