    I came home today and my 1 year old Chicken is lethargic and I believe coughing. There is no discharge around her nose and eyes are clean and clear. She was fine yesterday. What do you think is wrong and how do I help her?

    Emmaellis111....thank you!
    I think she has gape worm. We have a lot of snails in our yard. She is more gasping for air than coughing. Thoughts on remedies??
