    My chicken has been gurgling and wheezing for the past few months now. She has been eating fine but has been sneezing. Do you know any at home products I could use to cure her of it?

    -Thanks!

    I would try to find out what the problem is first. Mold fungus can cause aspergillosis, and there are several viruses and bacteria that cause chronic respiratory diseases. MG, coryza, ILT, infectious bronchitis are others are common. Fungi and viruses won't respond to antibiotics, while symptoms of bacterial diseases may improve. Many people use herbs such as garlic and oregano oil, but there are no studies that tell how much or if they work. You can contact your local extension service or state vet or find a local lab to get tested.
