    One of my hens is sneezing and making horrible noises. One of my other hens did this a couple days ago and I was told it was impacted crop but now she is better. I thought they don't survive that. Any way can you tell me what it is and how to fix it. P.S yesterday she went to roost in mid day and went to sleep and she is breathing raspy.

    Give us the following information. The more you tell us, the better we will be able to help you.

    1) What type of bird , age and weight (does the chicken seem or feel lighter or thinner than the others.)
    2) What is the behavior, exactly.
    3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms?
    4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms?
    5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma.
    6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation.
    7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all.
    8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc.
    9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far?
    10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet?
    11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help.
