This is my first post here. I have had a flock of chickens since March 2015. This is the first time any of my chickens have gotten sick. My 10 month old blue orpington hen started having trouble breathing and coughing/sneezing on Friday afternoon. Today she is struggling to breathe still. Her eyes and nose are clear with no discharge anywhere. She ate and drank yesterday but today she stopped eating and drinking. I have given her some water with a pipette today. I was thinking it could possibly be gape worm so I treated her with some fenbendazole. Any ideas on what to do for her? She is one of my favorite hens with such a sweet personality! I would hate to lose her. Any help greatly appreciated!!
