    Pictures of the chicken may be helpful. It sounds like it has a respiratory disease such as mycoplasma gallisepticum or coryza. These are chronic diseases that can infect other chickens. Some choose to cull or have a closed flock. Drugs such as oxytetracycline in the water or Tylan50 injectable can help. Here is some info to read about them: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
