    My 18 month old barred rock is walking around the coop weasing in and out in her regular voice with her beak open like she can't breathe. IS this a sign of congestion or a disease? Should I take her out before it affects the others or should I let it run it's course??
    Thanks!! It's also cold up here in Maine!!

    ... might have been the dust from the coop ....bring her into a warmer temp stable area that is not drafty so inside the house (or garage or basement?).... once she warms up you will notice a great improvement... keep her there till she is recovered.
    Add a good general supplement to her feed and be on the alert fordisease symptoms. Do a search on this forum for OXINE and mist the area she is staying in several times a day and give her a couple weeks to recover and reintroduce slowly to the outside temps
