    My black silkie chicken has a more & more frequent sneeze. In picking her up she is shaking her head, her beak is slightly open and she is wheezing and having some difficulty breathing. She's making a sad little moany noise. Otherwise seems normal in her behavior. What should I do?

    I would start her on antibiotics just for precaution. Agrimycin (sp) covers most respiratory ailments. You can get this at most feed stores. [​IMG]
