    I have an old hen who has been shaking her head for about 2 days now. Today she began sneezing and yawning a lot. She's even started scratching her neck with her beak. I've never had a chicken with something like this before so I don't know how to deal with it. Is it possible for an old hen to get gapeworm, and if so how do I treat it?
