Ok,so we made a terrible mistake and got 5 chickens from a girl and I knew when we pulled up we should have left, but we drove 3 hrs to this place so I went on with getting a few birds. The place was stinky, but it had just rained very hard for a few days before so I thought maybe that was the problem, but still, there were too many chicks in too small cages and I feel like an idiot for buying ANYTHING. BUT, I did. So now I got these chickens home and OF COURSE they are sneezing and have runny noses. No watery eyes, no swelling, but def. lots of sneezing. We have them separated, and they are on Duramycin. Should we just cull them? Seriously, we have ten 6 month old chickens that I am VERY attached to. They are so sweet. I really just don't want my big girls to catch it. Will they catch "it" even if we get the little ones better? The little ones went in the run yesterday for about 20 minutes while the big girls were free ranging, but then went straight into confinement. They really haven't had direct contact with the big girls, but it sounds like everything is so contagious they might have gotten it already since the sickys went into the run for a bit. Grrrr. I'm so mad at myself. Idiot newbie. Please give me some advice?????
