I hope not as we have just lost 5 pekins to that because the seller never used medicated feed, they were nowhere near this cockerel either.
I have tried to syringe some medicated water to him which we were given by the vet this morning but I feel it maybe too late as I doubt he will make it to the morning.
As a matter of course we are going to treat all the adult birds tomorrow to make sure they do not catch it, as the growers and chicks are fed medicated food anyway.
We at South West Poultry Breed Blue Cochin's, Various Pekin's (Including Frizzles) and to come in the future - Sablepoot's, Transylvanian Naked Necks, Serama's, Rhode Island Reds and Oxford Sandy and Black Rare Breed Pigs.
We have too many chicks and growers to list but it must be at least 60 !.
We also have 3 children, A Patterdale Terrier, A green Iguana and a Albino Ring Neck Parrot.
Sarah and I are new to poultry and other related smallholdery things but we are loving every minute of what we do.
