    She seems fine as far as interacting with the other adults and eats and drinks just as greedily as the normal breathing birds but I can't help but wonder and worry if something is wrong. She doesn't have swollen sinus cavities or runny eyes and nose, just the squeaking and purring noises literally 24/7 for the past 48 hours. Does anybody have any input that could be useful?

    I have the same things with one of my hens. Any ideas anyone?
