All You Need To Know About Coryza in Chickens

Today we are going to focus on Infectious coryza– a fairly common respiratory disease in chickens. It’s also known as ‘roup’, catarrh, ‘pip’ or IC.

We are going to explain what it is, how the chickens get infected, the problems it causes, the treatment for infected birds, and finally, how to help prevent your flock from becoming ill.

Although it is not as devastating to a flock as Marek’s or lymphoid leucosis, it can be equally as deadly to your older or weaker birds or birds with suppressed immunity.

We have put the information into a question-and-answer format as the information seems to flow easier this way.
