    I have a 3 month old chick in my grow out pen who started sneezing and coughing this morning. Her eyes are clear and there is nothing coming from her nose. I immediately isolated her and started her on Tetracycline Hydrocloride. My question is this: should I treat everyone in the pen, even though no one else is showing symptoms? The weather has changed here with the nights cooler. I would appreciate any advice!

    I don't think it sounds too concerning without there being a runny nose or puffy bubbly eyes. If it gets worse just let us know.

    Thank you so much. She is eating and drinking, and so far none of the others show symptoms. Thank you again!
