    It sounds like she has a respiratory disease or sinus infection. Many bacteria and viruses can cause this such as mycoplasma G (also called CRD), coryza, and infectious bronchitis. An antibiotic such as Tylan 50, Tylan powder, erythromycin, Duramycin 10 may help if you can get one at your farm store. Here is some info on diseases: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
