How do you know its pneumonia? I have a hen who is weezing and sneezing. Was wondering how I would make a diagnosis or how you did....

Hi, I have brought some to the slaughter house and it is the vet there that told me that some have pneumonia, you can actually tell because they wheeze when they breathe, if your hens cough and have runny nose, it is probably choriza and need some medecine, i do not know the name of it for laat time mine had it was summer so i isolated them in an outside pen with lots of fresh water and sun in a dry spot and only one actually died from it, but i was told i was lucky. I am looking up for oxine but it is hard to come buy in quebec, so i might have to buy it from the states, hoping they don't confiscate it at the border

I wouldn't think they would confiscate it at the border it's not drugs.. just be sure to show them what it is with a print out from the shagbarkbantams. Good luck and God bless you for getting those girls out of that place.. thumbsup
