    Does anyone know if vent gleet is curable and/or contagious to other animals (angora rabbits, dogs)? what the treatment is? How long it takes to cure? Is it best to just cull the chicken?

    type vent gleet in the search engine you will find lots of info. It is a yeast infection, I have read here to give them yogurt, just like us gals
    would treat a yeast infection. Have they been on antibiotics lately? that is the most common cause of yeast in people.
