    So I've brought home a new buff who's the same age and from the same glock as all my other girls, she became sick within a week. So we treated them with antibiotics and I've wormed them all with Valbazen. They're in between diesels right now. She's stopped gasping for air and is eating and drinking quite well. However while in the coop she tends to sleep mostly. Is this normal even though she shows major signs of improvement from the original illness? [​IMG]

    See how she was gasping? Thank god that's stopped, she had us worried.
