    I have 9 chickens. I have noticed over the last couple of days that 2 of them sound sick. I can hear them breathing. Not all the time just some times. What can I treat them with?
    Thanks

    First off, chickens don't catch colds. Second, you need to quarantine the sick ones immediately. Third, you need to figure out exactly what they have before you can treat them properly. Different antibiotics treat different things.

    Can you give us more information on their symptoms?
