    She is being very quiet, letting me hold her (very unusual), sitting on the floor not on a roost. But her breathing, I can hear her, like she is a phlegmy baby. What can I do to help her? How likely to be contagious? I've only had this girl for a week, she is about 6 months old. Haven't got an egg from her yet, but she is getting picked on by my older girls. Figured the stress has her off her egg production. Thank you, Jackie
