Any advice welcomed; Chicken medical issue;
One of my chickens started making a wheezing/crying sound with occasional chirps this evening after spending day free-ranging.
Her eyes are clear
No nasal discharge
She was scratching at her head, occasionally
her comb looks normal, legs look normal
I gave her a scrambled egg with a little molasses and she ate it.
I gave her bread soaked in olive oil and she ate some.
We placed a dog crate with bedding, water, food with oyster shell into the cage and she did eventually settle/quiet down and stop her wheezing/crying; we left her in the cage because the other chickens were bothering her, which is unusual.
Any advice or thoughts are much appreciated.
My only insight is that I did feel her crop and it felt firm, off to the right and I heard digestive sounds; I did gently massage her crop.
Thank you all!
