    Hey, my chicken, who is a production red, has some black looking dried goop on one side of her beak, coming from her nostril. She is coughing and sneezing, not a lot, but I still would like to know what's wrong with her, he has had it for a while, and none of my other birds are effected. Thanks!

    Ok, but it's nothing life threatening right? And thank you for your response!

    Some of these diseases carry a higher mortality than others. I don't believe any are curable. It will take some time to do the reading. This is one source, which was also linked in my reply above:

    Ok, cause she has had it or a while and doesn't seem to be effecting her in any other way other than sneezing.
