    have a chicken that has a sudden onset of breathing problems. went to the coop to let the chickens out and all were fine. My wife went out a half hour later and on her return trip in one of the chickens is sounding like a toy rubber chicken trying to get air in and out. acts normal other than the breathing and sneezing and shaking her head.

    if anyone has had same symptoms we would like to hear from you

    it sounds like mycoplasma or some other form of respiratory infection.
