    A little more information would be helpful.

    How old are the chickens?
    Did they have a respiratory illness? What were the symptoms - coughing, wheezing, sneezing, runny nose/eyes, etc.?
    What did you treat them with?

    Sounds like respiratory illness...I am not a vet, but do use OXY TETRA-A....Antibiotic...Also Super Boost...Mixes in water..I use two separate waterers....

    Good luck...Look up LT Virus....

    Corid is a Coccidiostat, it is not an antibiotic.

    You may want to try some injectable Tylan 50, this can be given orally or by injection. Dosage is 1cc or ml per 5lb of weight. Give it orally or as an injection into the breast muscle 1/4" deep. (3-5days)

    Separate the ones that are still showing symptoms and treat them.

    Stop the Corid and the Safeguard. (Safeguard shouldn't be used for 7days).

    Make sure they are staying hydrated and offer extra protein like egg, tuna, mackerel or meat.

    Let us know how they are doing.

    I use it as long as my symptoms are showing...Sometimes takes two weeks...My flock contracted the LT Virus...Just having another out break right now being the weather is cold here...

    Are you still using the wormer? And if Coccidia was not the problem? No need for Corrid...

    No stopped the corid after the 5 day treatment and used the safeguard 3 days because I was confused read 1 day and then read use it for 3 so to be safe I used it for 3. But why up to day 7 did they sound good and then some sound bad again. I had them confined in the coop for that length of time. The wind dos blow for the last two days stirring up dust could that of done it!? I am about ready to give up! Can you mix the Tylan injectable with water

    What?
    The OXY TETRA-A is for water...Thought you said your using that?
    Stress can bring on an outbreak if it is the LT Virus or any other illness...Many they contract will keep them carriers for life...Meaning flare ups are always expected.

    Super boost also has vitamins plus antibiotic...I use both...
