One of my 3-4 month old Marans is gasping for air. I think it just started today. PLEASE HELP.
Check for an impacted crop and look down the throat for any signs of gapeworms, lesions, etc.
Any discharge from beak/eye area?
No discharge what is impacted crop
The crop shouldn't be hard or squishy.
The link below shows where the crop is located on the bird.
Its squishy!! WHAT DO I DO!!!! HELP!!
Hope this helps https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/help-chicken-gasping-for-air.442548/
IT WONT EAT OR DRINK THAT IV NOTICED!!! PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!!!!!!
Did she swallow anything that could be lodged in her trachea?
Try to open her mouth and see if you can see anything down there.
I'm not trying to be mean, but your needing to help your chicken,what you need to do is calm down and feel the crop it's on the left side of the birds body just below the neck. this is with you looking at the bird face on how does it feel? Also check for gape worm by using a qtip and putting it a little ways down its mouth and see if anything comes out on it you have to go a ways into the throat. From what I've read the worms are red and have like 2 heads. their small.
What has happened? is your chicken any better?
