    I've got a pullet who came to me with an upper respiratory infection. For many reasons, I kept her rather than returning her, and I know the risks of owning a chicken with a prior illness. However, I do need to get her out of my bathroom and back with the others. She's no longer showing symptoms and is on day five of 1/4 injection of Tylan 50, twice daily. Think it's safe to move her outside with the others tomorrow (day six of medication)?

    Put her in a dog crate for a couple of days...Look no touch setting...Then let her go back and see how it all goes....

    Good luck
