    I have a few new birds showing signs of illness (one hen has been lethargic for a couple days and a roo started sneezing this morning). One of my breeder friends recommended tetracyline powder, but I have gone to 2 TSCs and a farmer's co-op and they are all out. I don't want to lose these birds. What else can I do? Please feel free to IM me.


    Thanks!!!

    Just google Tylan. You can definitely buy is online lots of places. It may says it's for fish but it is the same thing. I bought some at a local aquarium store as well.

    I ended up finding tetracycline at the 5th store and started them on it tonight. Thanks for the suggestion.
