Chicken Infectious Coryza
« on: June 01, 2016, 10:05:02 AM »
(sigh) I think one of my hens has the dreaded Infectious Coryza. She is very lethargic, minimal appetite, raspy sound from voice and her left eye area is very swollen and she has sticky mucus. From what I understand it's transmitted from direct contact and water. Not good. Even if I treated her she is still a carrier. I might have to cull my small flock, sanitize their coop. Anyone else have to deal with this?

1ml tylan50 in the back of the throat, for 3 days---healed 2 or 3 in a year or so----No other problems.

From what I understand, they will always be a carrier and thus contagious.

Yep, you are right---If that is what it is? Did you send off a sample to have it checked to see if that is what it is?? There is probably many other things that it could be and look like Coryza, but not be it. We always think the worse. Your call.
