    I got a new hen today, and she was fine. Then when we got her into the heated truck she started to sound clogged up. She is still sounding a bit stuffy... nothing really draining, but almost like she is wheezing a bit or something. Its almost like when you go in and out of the heat and you get a runny nose. The gentleman I bought the hen from had a healthy flock. She did not start this sound until we got in the truck... any ideas? Apple cider vinegar? Tylan? Anti Biotics?

    seems to just be in her nose. I gave her a drop of tylan this morning. It seems more like an allergy thingy but I am catching it early if it is anything. I am going to put antibiotics in the water today just to be sure.

  5. you said there was zero drainage..just rattly a bit?

    Watch for other signs of gape worms...probably just an allergy, but you never know.
