Hi everyone,

thought this was a respiratory disease but it’s been about 2 weeks since we noticed. Have her some vet rx and it improved but since has come back. No one else in the rest of the 9 chicken flock is experiencing any symptoms. And she is eating drinking and laying normally. We witnessed this on the video tonight. I thought maybe gapeworm but heard it was pretty rare. Maybe a viral infection? Or is she just adjusting her crop and this has nothing to do with her wheezing?
She is about 6 months old. Please help with any ideas on how to proceed.

she’s had better and worse wheezing for two weeks it improved after the vet rx. Tonight is the first time she’s ever done this. But other than the wheezing she has been perfectly healthy and acting normally.

She looks like she is sneezing in the video! It looks like when my Brahma has a sneezing fit.😉 I really wish I could help more but I know hardly anything about chicken symptoms and diseases!😞

This sounds a looks like a sneeze. I would check to make sure nothing is in her crop. I had one with something she ate stuck in the neck area on the way down sound similar. I just massaged a little and it seemed to help.
If there is no nasal discharge, continue with the vetrx. To me, it seems like she's looking well and that's just a sneeze. If there is discharge, I would recommend a vet.

Can you post the video on another platform or make the video public? Not everyone uses facebook:)

Thanks for all the help! Unfortunately, I don’t have any other platform (I was barely able to do it on Facebook). Once again everyone really appreciate your help!
