Help Please! Chicken breathing heavy

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

Tonight when I went out to lock up my cluckers, I noticed 1 of my bantam hens was breathing very heavy.  She also sneezed a couple of times. She's a 3 year old Serama hen.  She's not laying (none of my seramas lay in the winter though) but she's still eats and drinks fine.  She seemed fine yesterday.  I just wormed her with fenbenzal (incase of gape worms) and we gave her a .10th of a cc of Tylan 200 in a piece of bread that she ate.  I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what she has and if I should give her anything else.

Thanks!                   Oh, and I don't know what her poop looks like yet.

No NAIS!  NAIS benefits big factory farms and makes it harder for small farms to raise and sell food!  NAIS does nothing to improve food safety for consumers or prevent animal diseases! It is taking away our freedom! This is going to be very expensive and guess who is going to pay for it in higher food prices? You!  Help us stop it- http://nonais.org/

Thanks for the replies.  I've been really busy.  But, good news, she seems all better now! big_smile  The next day I heard her clucking and went to check on her, and saw her lay an egg!  After that she was breathing fine, then started scratching around!  I kept her seperate for a few more days and watched her just incase, but she seemed all back to normal.  Go figure. idunno
