    Well, at least pull the straw out. Wash their noses. Steam can help to get things moving, make it runnier so it comes out. It's not right for a chicken to have nasal discharge. Are they coughing or sneezing? - flu.

    Without pics or more description of what the problem is, how long it has been going on, her overall condition, etc., we're shooting in the dark.

    Try some VetRX or some other aromatic essential oil like it on her wattles and see if that helps.

    If you can get a picture and post it, it would help. I can't tell if you're reacting to something that was simply mechanical irritation, or she has some sort of bacteria that needs systemic treating.
