    My two month old (roughly) Easter Egger hurt her leg, so she was in a box by herself recuperating, but yesterday while I was watching her she went to drink and dipped her whole beak including her nostrils in to the water, and this morning she was only cheeping very faintly when I checked on her, she was the same this afternoon.[​IMG] Can anyone help?

    If she aspirated? Pneumonia could settle into her lungs....

    Call a vet for info....Not sure what you can do for her??

    Cheers!
