    She is acting normal, eating and drinking good. We gave her some oatmeal this morning and she sounds better.

    If there is drainage, keep on keeping her separate. You might need to find out if it is something that can be spread. There are lots of respiratory issues and diseases in chickens, and many can be deadly
