Hen breathing heavy with sounds that sounds similar to a stuffy nose

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
She is 9 months old. It's gotten pretty cold here. We started up the heater and the heat light. She is eating good and drinking. Doesn't act like there is anything wrong but she isn't breathing right. It is heavier than usual and sounds like theirs fluid or something in the way. I noticed it last night and it continued this morning.

Sounds like a mild respiratory issue.......OXY TETRA-A in the water for a week will help.........Possibly reacting to the stress of the cold weather.....

She just pooped twice! She's drinking and eating great. Could it be a problem with dust in the coop?

Keep an eye on her......If she seams happy, put her back with the others....The less stress on her the better.....
