  1. i found a white crested black polish pullet and she is not doing too good, she is underweight, has a bad lice problem (that is now under control due to baths), and her nars are blocked up,
    now I've never dealt with a blocked nare, i cleaned it out a little bit (she was breathing through her mouth when i found her) and now when she breaths she sounds like she is snoring (is that normal with a partially blocked nare?) she has no wheezing,coughing, or sneezing, so does a blocked nare normally smell like an abscess? also right where her nare is there is a bump that i think has always been there, that is also filled with the stuff blocking her nars, I'm sorry that i don't have any pictures.
