    My 6mo-old white Marans is inhaling through her mouth and exhaling through her nose with a croaky honk each time. She pushes pretty hard when she exhales. She's been fine until today. No nasal discharge. I felt her and there were no lumps or obstructions that I could tell. She's mostly moving around with the flock.

    I have her in a cage inside and Sulmet in her water. Don't know if that's what she needs, but it's all I have in the way of medications. She's getting honkier. Is that like our sore throats? Does she have an obstruction somewhere, allergies, what??? I'm worried!
