Sick hens

Tonight, I was closing my hens in for the night and I noticed that one of the young pullets had a weeping nose and a bubbly eye. She didnt go up on the perch either. I'm wondering if its mycoplasma gallisepticum??
If so does anyone know how to treat it? Should I take her away from the rest of the flock?

This has been tearing through my flock too. I’m gutted and have lost a few pullets now. The older adult ones dont seem as badly affected. I have been giving them Tylan since Tuesday evening, but only noticing small improvements. What you are describing definitely sounds like mycoplasma. How is egg production?

Just something to be mindful of boys and girls before you start shooting up the hens theres a life time ban on eating eggs from hens that have treated with bayril.
