    Hello,
    I recently had infectious Coryza break out in my flock (due to a lady who I bought chicks from that kept her birds in very poor condition). I euthanized all the infected bird, and am now wondering what the life span of the disease is away from birds (how long the disease organisms live without a host).
    Thanks!
