    My favorite hen was clearly having trouble breathing when I let them out this morning, not to the gasping phase yet. I had another hen die of this a year ago. Is there anything I can do to save her? How long do respiratory infections incubate? Now I'm worried about my other chickens, although no one showed any symptoms after my other hen died.
