    How old is she? Has she been showing any signs of a respiratory disease such as sneezing, wheezing, gasping,nasal or eye drainage? Can you look inside the beak and throat for any yellow patches or foreign body? How long has this been going on? Make sure that she is drinking some water with electrolytes or Gatorade.
