    Hey guys, I have a 7 month old hen that started breathing heavy and will not walk much for 2 days now. I have her inside and administered Vet RX to her. I have electrolytes in her water and fresh food. She is still eating and drinking. She has no runny nose or wheezing. What can this be?? I've checked for mites as well. All my other chickens are fine. Thanks in advance to any help!

    Hope the ER folks will respond to you soon. It helps if you give them as much detail as you can. How old is the hen? How long has she been acting like this? Have you checked her for wounds or injuries - does she act like she is in pain?

    I've checked for wounds and mites, none what so ever. She is about 7 months and she has been acting like this for 2 days. I have her inside and been giving her water with electrolytes in it. She is still eating. Runny diarrhea. Just real labored breathing and weakness.
