sneezing and coughing chicken - Page 2
Very sorry you lost some of your birds. Have the rest been alright?
I have two with chronic respiratory disease that gives them ongoing problems, but hasn't been severe enough to be fatal.
Chickens are a joy.

we recently added on to the coop to accommodate new girls. the straw is the same we have been using, but we have had strong north winds for 3 or 4 days now. She is the only bird coughing-sneezing. I can hear the crackle also. We swabbed her throat for gape worms but it was clear. We checked her poop and is was just poop - no foreign bodies, etc. We kept her separate from the other girls for a night and then yesterday and after checking her we let her out and she was running around like normal and her appetite had returned. We are going to check on duramycin or Vet Rx to see if that helps.
