    I noticed my hen making a noise. Kind of wheezing or barkish. Looked on here and having trouble finding things (probably being very impatient). So, I googled it. I saw a video of a barred rock (like mine) making the same noise. The owner gave the hen some vetx. Does it sound like my hen may have this? Will the vetx help? Can I buy this at tractor supply? Sorry, I am new to all of this and upset she may be sick.


    Worried!!

    Can you post a video of your chicken or atleast the video that you found?

    It could be a number of respiratory diseases such as Infectious Bronchitis (IB) or Mycoplasma G. (MG).

    I am not sure how to add a video. Someone said that it could be they are maturing and sounds changing. No swollen eyes or anything unusual. They were running around stealing cicadas from each other. I take that to be a good sign. ?

    It's possible the sounds you are hearing could be voice changes.
