    Fed oxytetracycline for 1 week. Separated 5 sneezing hens. Only one other occasionally coughing. Only this hen is still coughing with no change at all. Every blue moon and I mean an hour do I hear a sneeze-maybe I have about 60 hens.



    I guess my question at this point is should she be put down or should I keep medicating. oxytetracycline 5t/gal + electrolytes/vitamins and vet rx

    Hi. [​IMG]

    I don't know the answer. But I do know some take longer to recover than others.

    Best wishes!
