    My dark braham hen may have a cold idk what it is there is not a lot wrong but I'm a little worried she has discharge from her nose I feel like it's just alittle cold or something because it dropped from 72 to 32 in 2 days so can chickens get colds and she eats and drink but she just sneezes alittle more than average you know?? I just don't want my others to get sick.
