    Hi. [​IMG] What can I give all of my 22 chickens that is affordable for an upper respratory infection? I had got a new rooster about 1 month ago and he came with it and spred it to my whole flock. Is this deadly? I am afraid.[​IMG]

    Check out this thread - particularly post 2 from Southerndesert - very informative read about Oxine. Not to make you feel bad, but had your new rooster been in quarantine for the past 30 days, you'd only be dealing with 1 sick bird instead of 22.... [​IMG] Consider it lesson learned and move on to getting your flock healthy again.

    Best of luck to you and your birds.

    Can it be cured naturally or will they eventually die?
