    My adult flock has been hit hard with some kind of really bad cold....or something. I have just finished a 7 day treatment of sullmet and now they are on vitamin water just to help them recover from the harsh antibiotics. Today while taking care of my babies...I noticed one standing off to the side, all puffed out. When I pick the little fellow up he was wheezing and has a runny nose/beak.

    Can I treat them as this young of age? and if so, what with.

    Also, should I isolate the sick or do you think all of the babies need to be treated?

    Thank you so much for you help!

    I know giving vit, electrolytes and apple cider vinegar as supportatvie care shoul be okay. You need someone with more experience to tell you how to do more than that.

    You can give him scrambled eggs and yogurt.
