So I think my chicken is a two month old English game bantam. She seems extremely healthy and alert and is eating and drinking and doing everything normal except she makes this sound when she gets too excited like she has mucus in her throat. I tried antibiotics but it did nothing so now I'm not sure if she's really sick. Any suggestions as to what she might have? I have two new chickens and km afraid to introduce them because I don't know if she is sick or not.

Can you post a video of her?

She sneezes and coughs occasionally but not all the time. She's flung some snot or so it of something on me when she sneezes but her eyes are fine. O already gave her two weeks work of antibiotics and all it did was make her poop runny

If you are seeing mucous and some coughing/sneezing as well, then she has a respiratory illness.

What medicine did you give her?
Any of the other chicks have any symptoms?

I gave her clavamox that was prescribed from the vet. I've also put terra vet in her water and given her the other two vet rx.

Did they vet give you any indication of what it may be?

Are you giving the Terra Vet while giving Clavamox?

Just keep her separated and see how she does. Antibiotics won't cure respiratory illnesses, but can help with any secondary infections that may arise.

Make sure she is eating/drinking well.
