    Hey guys!
    I currently have a Grey Japanese Bantam hen who is sick. I don't know with what.
    She is currently in a cage in the garage so I can check up on her.
    I found her in her coop... she has been opening her mouth over and over gasping and making an odd heaving sound. Everytime she does it she extends her head forward. I don't know what it is or what to do.
    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Egh... I don't have any of that stuff.
    Is there anything I can do until I get some? I don't want to loose her.
