Not sure what’s going on with our older little lady- 5 year old Rhode Island Red. She is walking around eating and drinking ok, but does a mouth open gasp like motion every minute or so. Is this gapeworm? How do I know and what should i do. I’m mad because we are leaving for a week tomorrow night for our anniversary and leaving the hens in care of others :( I can attach the video because it’s apparently too large.

Check nostrils for discharge, mouth for anything out of the ordinary, abdomen, and vent area and head especially for lice or mites.
