I have 6 Rhode Island Red hens, all approximately 3 years old. Yesterday I noticed on of them was not acting right, and I need some information/help. One hen appears to have breathing problems? She sits in one stop, extends her neck out, opens her beak, and acts like she is gasping for air? This goes on non stop, for 2 days now. For lack of better terms, I call it guppy breathing. She doesn't make any sounds, so I was wondering if anyone has seen/experienced this before and if so, what should be done? Thanks.
