You may want to post this under the Emergencies section on the index page. You might get more help there because not everyone looks at the New member intros. Just remember to read the first sticky, It list a bunch of questions that you should post with your problem, it helps the readers to identify the problem. Good luck with her.

You poor thing, I can imagine how scary it is to have 2 of them acting up!


I responded to your other post but wanted to reassure you that there are TONS of people here who have experience and great advice.

A few things can cause coughing/sneezing; dust from food or bedding, ammonia buildup and with her health problems I have heard congestive heart failure has symptoms including coughing. Just to throw some things out there. Any other behavioral problems? It is helpful to post stuff like what she is eating, what your coop is like, how many other birds there are, is anyone else showing symptoms? Does poo look normal? These can all give clues as to her health
