Will adding vitamin mixture to chicks water help them fight off uri? I have no antibiotics. Please help me. I only have rooster booster vitamins and electrolytes with lacto bacillus, and poultry nutri-drench.

How old are your chickens and what symptoms are you seeing so far? Some diseases (infectious bronchitis, ILT) are caused by viruses where antibiotics do not help anyway. Some are caused by bacteria or mycoplasma (MG, coryza, ORT) and certain antibiotics may be useful for each. Then there is aspergillosis, a fungus that will not respond to AB’s as well. Here is a handy guide to common diseases:

They are almost a month old. One had a swollen eye and passed away. Now another one is sneezing and I have no antibiotics and I have no access to them. That is why I was wondering if vitamins could help there immune systems, and help them fight whatever it is they have off. I think they either have coryza or upper Respiratory infection. Either or, its spreading and I'm trying to contain it and fight it with what I have
