    I have a Marans roo that is sneezing and I think he has a respiratory disease, I think i am going to cull him though. But that isn't the bad part I also have a Old English Game Bantam roo that I think had a respiratory disease when he was younger, I gave him some meds and he cleared up. He was sneezing and wheezing at the time then it may have happened again but it cleared up by itself if he had it that second time. Is the OEGB a carrier of a respiratory disease.

    I was wondering if I should be worried about the rest of my flock , they are not sneezing or acting sick. I had a OEGB roo that was sick when he was younger, I have him meds he cleared up, he might have had started sneezing one more time but it cleared by its self. So does my flock secretly have it? Do I need to replace the flock? I don't want them to be sick because I would like to sell chicks and eggs and such. Thank you for any help you can give.

    You should have the ones that were/are sick tested for mycoplasma.

    It will cost less than culling your flock, lol. Call your state vet/lab and ask.

    Thanks. But I was actually thinking about culling them and getting a heritage breed chicken. Wat would I have to do to keep the new birds from getting it.
