    Hi one of our chickens is looking a little under the weather. Although she is eating she stands about looking a bit hunched at times. The main issue I have noticed is a puffing in and out of the skin below her eyes as she breathes. Is this normal? Or is she struggling with her breathing? It's hard to tell. I can't see the same with the other two and she doesn't sound like breathing is an issue. Hope someone can help. Thanks
