http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecp3WyWxGGY Sorry for the long post, but want to be very descriptive! Here's the back story. I have been in the process of selling my house and moving since March. I took my 7 hens to a relative's house to stay while moving (she has 25 hens and 1 rooster). I know it's best to quarantine new hens for 30+ days when introducing to a new flock, but I had no choice but to put them all in together. No fighting or anything and they all were doing perfectly for about 2 months. When I visited last about 3 weeks ago, I noticed my Dominique (Aster) was VERY lethargic, empty crop, strange breathing noises and seemed to have very labored breathing. I had to leave her there for 3 more weeks until we moved into our new house, and I moved all 7 of my hens to my new house 1 week ago. Aster has been better as far as increased appetite and more energy, but she still occasionally makes honking/wheezing noises when breathing. Please watch my video to listen to what it sounds like (turn the volume up high). I noticed she isn't panting, but breathing like this with her mouth shut. It was very hot when I took the video (about 95 degrees) so she normally would be panting like all my other hens, but she was not. She has not panted at all and it has been this hot for over a week now. So that seems strange to me as well. None of my hens have the same condition, and none of the other 26 chickens she lived with for a few months have the same condition either. So it doesn't seem to be contagious, unless the symptoms take more than 3 months to show up in other chickens. Here's more info on her condition. Please help if you have dealt with a similar situation!!! 1) What type of bird , age and weight. - Dominique hen, 22 months, has lost weight 2) What is the behavior, exactly. - Honking/wheezing when breathing (not panting even though it's 95 degrees outside and all my other hens pant) 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? - first noticed 3 weeks ago 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? - NO, doesn't seem to be contagious at all unless it takes weeks to show up in other hens 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. - she does have a notch chipped out of the top part of her beak (not huge, though), not sure what happened 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. - Not sure 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. - appetite has been decreased and has lost weight, her crop is always empty 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. - normal poop 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? - Nothing yet, fresh air and lots of hugs 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? - I'd like to treat myself as there are no avian vets in my area 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. - please see you tube link for video of what it sounds like (turn the volume way up) 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use - wooden coop just purchased, use deep litter method with pine shavings. at my aunt's house they didn't use this method and there was a VERY bad smell from all the poop. i wonder if that has something to do with her breathing?? Thanks for any input/ideas you have! I just want her to be back to her old self again.
