The Chickens have a Cold

I made the mistake you always read about. I’m ashamed to type this. I bought chickens from a fellow backyard farm and did not quarantine and treat them first. Now our chickens are sick with a cold. I have researched their symptoms and it seems like they have a Chicken cold or CRD or Chicken Bronchitis or any number of other respiratory illnesses. They started getting sick about 7 days ago. I went to the feed store and invested in some antibiotics. So far I haven’t lost any but I’m worried about my favorite rooster. Dominique did not look good last night. I brought one of my favorite Wyandotte hens in and kept her in the house until she was eating and drinking. That took about 5 days. I fed her Nutridrench and the antibiotic- Duramycin. Don’t worry we are not keeping any of the eggs being layed right now. If you have any ideas for other things I can do………….. please let me know. I don’t want to lose any chickens.
