    At the Ohio National 2012 Chicken Show I purchased a Light Brahma. She is so beautiful and I love her. BUT...I noticed yesterday that she is coughing. I am worried about her. I want her to be okay and I am willing to do anything. She has a bit of a running nose. Should I move her inside to care for her? What should I do? I am so sad.

    I am a new chicken owner so hopefully someone else chimes in. I recently got some new chickens who were coughing. One died. I went to the feed store and they told me to give them antibiotics. They sold me tetracycline and have been putting it into their water. I'm still not sure if this is a good idea but they do seem healthier.
