    Sorry, I can't be on here as often as I'd like. The answer for liquid Corid (which is the only kind I'm aware of that feed mills sell) is two tsp per gallon. I hope it helps her.

    I started the medicine on sat. Today is Monday and cocoa started wheezing this morning. So that’s interesting.

    Are you by any chance syringing any medication into her beak?
    Did she and the other chickens come from the same place?

    Time to cage her for a couple of days. Use puppy pads to line your cage so you can see what her poop looks like. Makes it easier to collect your sample of poop for testing as well.
    Provide her with her normal feed and water. Eliminate most treats for the time being. If feel she needs a treat, give her some scrambled eggs.
    Check her crop regularly to see that it's emptying completely overnight.
    Feel her abdomen for bloat/swelling and watch to see if eating/drinking corresponds with the wheezing.

    We did get all the chickens from the sameness place. I’m not syringing medication into her beak. Should I keep giving the medicated water?

    I should mentioned she started wheezing after she at eight some treats and food. She was eating prettyfast. She’s never wheezed before.

    How long has she been wheezing?
    Since you noticed it after she ate treats and food, likely she inhaled something into her airway, this is called Stridor. Hopefully it will resolve on it's own. There's not a lot that you can do about it right now but to wait and see. Only make her normal food and water available.

    They do sell powder as well, and it's a different dose than the liquid :)

    OH, well, here, they only sell the liquid. That's, I believe, what the OP was inquiring about.
