    Someone gave me a crossbeaked chicken - she's about 5 months old and what i thought was a respiratory problem, is not going away with antibiotics. I'm wonder if her weezing is from the cross beak? She's very active, no other symptoms of being sick. She eats and drinks fine. Anyone ever have something like this? I've been treating her for five days with Tylan soluble.

    I have had two crossbeaked chickens in my life and neither one had respiratory ailments.

    I was wondering if it's some type of nasal deformity
