    I have a cornishx hen that has been coughing. But every time she coughs something liquidy drips from her bottom. Is there something I should be doing for her? Thanks, I appreciate any help.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. I'd suggest posting your question on the "Emergencies, diseases, injuries and cures" section.

    In the meantime, the Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Joining your state thread (just type your state in the search box) will also put you in contact with other BYC members in your area.

    (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread)

    The members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best

    How old is she? When they are approaching "processing age," her body may be wearing out.

    x2 on the emergency forum. Give the experts there all the information you can think of about the hen (her age, is she pooping & eating normally, how long this has been going on, is she laying, etc.) and hopefully they can give you some answers.

    Hope all turns out well for her!
