    Please give us more information.

    Is your bird congested, in it's head (sneezing) or it's chest (wheezing when listening to it's chest)?

    How's it's poo?

    Spots on comb & waddles?

    Lethargic?

    Can't walk?

    Hen or Roo?

    More info please?

    Sounds like she could be egg bound. I haven't had experience with that yet, but in reading about others who have they will take the hen and set her in a tub or dishpan of warm water for a little while, say 10 minutes or so. This encourages her to pass the egg. Have you noticed any egg yolk on her butt feathers? Also, you should post this in emergencies where more people will see it that have experience with this problem.

    how old is your bird? Have you wormed her? how is her crop? Look inside her beak...Is all well or do you see cheesy stuff or plaques? What do you feed her?
