Our Rooster just passed away from infectious bronchitis. We quarantined him and were doing everything we could. He actually seemed to be getting much better then died overnight.

Our 5 hens seem healthy. They have been away from him for 5 days and show no symptoms. Do you think they are in the clear? I was also wondering if anyone knew how long the virus lives on the ground? I have gotten conflicting info on the internet.

Thank you!

Depends on which respiratory infection it is. Mycoplasma can live in the ground dormant for around 4 to 5 months I believe. I’m not sure about the others like Coryza, Avian Flu, Fowl Cholera..
