The last one immediately started getting her strength back when we brought in and started treating her, she also never quit eating and drinking on her own. This illness is driving me nuts because I don't know what it is.

I would check for lesions in the throat, which can be a sign of Laryngotracheitis. 

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

We did give her an extra day. Feeding and watering her by hand. Last night and this morning she was having problems swallowing. So I believe her respiratory issues were more due to the paralysis issues she was having. she didn't have any lesions or irritation in her throat. I am thinking it may have been EEE. As her symptoms and progression fit. So I am doubtful she had the same problem as the first hen that got sick and made a complete recovery. A few others in surrounding counties have had some issues. We had mosquitoes hatch out and swarm worse during this early fall than they did in the summer. Anything else that would have caused this would have been very contagious and I believe I would have had more than one sick chicken. So we are down one Gold Laced Wyandotte. Our broody buff orpington is sitting on some eggs fathered by our splash red laced wyandotte so we should have some blue laced chicks hatch out. sad.png
