    Well it seems that i am stacked with this problem. My isolated turkey still has the disease for more than three weeks now. No idea if it will ever recover. I have her isolated in order to avoid further cases in the flock. Now since i noticed this only when the turkey was really sick i noticed i am not sure if the other are infected. Some of the birds are still sneezing. Has anyone ever faced this problem with his/her flock? How the problem was solved? I already gave antibiotics to the birds. I really hope that it will not come back.

    The good thing is that the hens lay eggs. I got five hens that lay eggs and on a daily basis i get 3-4 eggs. If they stop laying would that be an indication that the disease returned stronger?
