Sick Chooks

In relation to the sick chooks...I'm wondering about infectious coryza...as the name states, it is an infectious disease where the chicken becomes ill usually with the change of seasons. The typical symptoms are sneezing, discharge from the nose which is horrible smelling. The face also puffs up...This is a tricky diagnosis as these are also the symptoms of sinusitis and both can be treated with antibiotics. If it is in fact infectious coryza, the whole flock will be affected within weeks and all will be suffering similar symptoms. If it is sinusitis, only the one chicken will be showing symptoms...
