    More information is needed including age, how long, what conditions that the chicken has been in, and your climate and present conditions. Look into the back of the throat with a light to see if anything is blocking the airway. Decribe any symptoms such as eye or nasal drainage, cough, sneeze, or any swelling around the eyes or face.
