    I would give her a dose of Terramycin. 2 teaspoons per gallon of water. I would also give her some Vitamins and Electrolytes. 1 teaspoon per gallon.

    Good Luck.

    You can get it at your local feedstore, like Tractor Suppy.

    Your welcome. I would give her medicine for at least a week. I had to do that when I got some silkies this year. They were all snotty sneezing, and the terramycin did the trick.
