I’m new to raising chickens. I have 6 hens and one rooster. I have a hen that acts like she is having issues breathing. She extends her neck and opens her mouth. I can hear her breathe. She is eating well and I’m assuming she’s drinking. She has no signs of discharge from her eyes or nostrils. I showed my vet a video of what she is doing. She give me antibiotics to put in there water. Tetroxy HCA-280. I’ve been doing it since Saturday 8-24-19. She still seems to be having trouble. How soon should I see more important? And what can be wrong with her? The doctor said a respiratory problem. But what if she’s not drinking and getting what she needs to feel better. I’m worried.
