    I have 50 sex links and they are laying, but they currently have a cough with a girgle and a runny nose. This is the best way I can describe it. Can anyone give me an idea what they have and how I cure it.

    Thanks,

    Tony

    Sounds like infectious coryza alot of it going around. you will need to give them an antibiotic like sulfadimethoxine.

    Doesn't coryza also present with a swollen face?

    erwin5, what has your weather been like? Is it changing from warm to cold? Any dampness?

    We have had weather changes, but when I looked up the symptoms they alluded to infectious bronchoitus. They do not have swollen faces, combs or wattles.

    Thanks for the replies,

    Tony
