    I have not noticed any nasal discharge, but she is sneezing and sounds very horse. What should I do?

    Have you had any disease in your flock before? Is she a new bird? She may possibly have a respiratory disease. There are many, some caused by bacteria and some by viruses. Watch for more signs such as eye and nasal drainage, bubbles in the eye, swelling of the face and eyes, and lying around being lethargic. Here is so info on mycoplasma, coryza, and infectious bronchitis: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044

    Thank you so much for the information. She is not a new bird and I have not had any other birds ill. I will check the link out and keep an eye on her. She is acting fine, eating and very active. She is just about ready to start laying, she started squatting the other day.
