    Does she have any swelling of her face or eyes, nasal or eye drainage, bubbles in her eyes, cough or sneeze? If not watch for these, and notice if the area she is in is dusty or has high ammonia levels from chicken droppings. Do you have any antibiotics? I wouldn't use any now, but Tylan 50 at $12 is a good buy for keeping around for any respiratory diseases. Here is a link to the different common diseases: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044

    I keep the coop really clean and they don't go in tell night time or there about to lay a egg.my chicken was egg bound a week or two ago and I got her to pass the egg with a warm bath and some olive oil but she hasn't layed another egg after that she looked tired at the time and was not running with the girls tell I got the egg out of her now she is weezing a week or two later and she keeps going in and out of the coop like she's about to lay and egg. Can egg bound be the cause of this:(
