Thank you both for your input .......I did check for canker , although I know it isn't always visible ...his throat was clear and pink although I will monitor that .

I think I might just go ahead and treat the whole flock with the sulfa - AVS as they have all had and have contact with each other and it might be worthwhile since we have a mice plauge going on here in this state at the moment .

Many thanks to you both and I will let you know if this proves successful .
If you have mice problems, you probably have salmonella. Check with dobato, but I think the triple sulfa should take care of it....or baytril. Before I got some triple sulfa, my first choice was baytril.
Can you 'mouse proof' the loft?

Thanks Waynette

If salmonella is a factor here , the sulfa AVS should clear it . The loft itself is mouse proof or at least I thought , however it is the outdoor aviary section proving to be the problem , they are coming up through a bricked floor outside and tunnels they are making underneath are shifting soil making the bricks sink giving them that room they need to sqeeze between the bricks to pop thru . Soon the outdoor section will go , be floored and become another section , so hopefully that will make it even more difficult for them .
Mice (and rats) are the hardest (in my opinion) to keep out!!! They are persistent and tunnel under everything :mad: I put 1/2 inch wire mesh in the ground under my flight cages and connected to the sides. But right now, because they are getting ready for winter, the rats are tunneling again under my flight cages. They can't get inside, but they are undermining the sand in the flight cage. I've been out there everyday the past 2 weeks running the hose in their holes. I've decided that I'm going to get a bag of 'quick crete' (concrete), and wherever they expose their tunnel under the wire mesh, I'm going to put the quick crete in and add water!!
