Treatment of Mycoplasma


In the Brooder
Sep 16, 2020
Hi all,
One of our lovely girls is currently on antibiotic treatment for a chicken cold (mycoplasma) and I was wondering if anyone can give me any experience in terms of treatment time etc?
We first noticed sneezing and slight bubbles to the eyes on Sunday so separated her and had the antibiotics to start on Tuesday, so we’re on day three of the treatment now. The eye bubbles have cleared and she’s not sneezing as much but is still a little rattly and not quite as energetic as usual. How long does it take for the antibiotics to fully kick in and is there anything else we can do to help her/easy her symptoms?
If it's MG, then the baytril should treat symptoms.
Thank you! At the recommendation of a local breeder, we’ve upped her dose as she’s a fairly big hen and she’s looking brighter already and shouted to be let out earlier so hoping we’ve caught it in time 🤞🏻
