Congested Chicken?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

One of my chickens sounds congested. She has no discharge to speak of but I can hear a rattle when she breathes.  She shakes her head every now and again like she is trying to clear something out. Her comb is still bright but she has not laid in over a week. She is the only one I have noticed this with but she is in a run with 9 other hens. Any ideas? Should I separate her out or is it too late all the others have what she has?

I don't know much but maybe you can look it up here, it may be a cold or something

This sounds like what my 5 week chick has! I am very worried. My other chicks are fine, just one is sickly. Did you ever find out what was affecting your chicken?

Thanks!

Welcome to BYC.  Since this is an old thread, you will get more views and advice if you describe your chick's symptoms and more info about where she came from on the emergency forum by starting your own thread here:  http://www.backyardchickens.com/forums/threads/add/forumId/10
