    I just dosed my chickens with Tylan soluble and almost all of them are better except one teen still has a snotty nose and its day 4 of 5? Does she need something different

    Vitamin supplements / electrolytes certainly won't do any harm - helps to perk them up a bit and give their immune system a boost. I'm sure the ER experts will provide further advice.

    Your only on day 4 or 5...Some birds take a bit longer...Continue to give meds another 5 days...If it does not clear up, that bird might have something else going on?

    Best of luck..

    Cheers

    It's quite possible that the one has a secondary infection that's resistant to tylosin (Tylan), or maybe it's not drinking enough medicated water.
