    I have a peachick that is 14 weeks old. She is in the pen with mother and father. I feed her 1 chicken egg a day and they have free access to gamebird feed. I also give them scrap vegies from garden and bread. She acts healthy, running around pen, but has started to sneeze some and cough within the last few days. I treated parents last winter with safeguard for chokeworm. I don't know if you have an idea as to what is wrong with her.
    Thank you

    Is there any discharge from her eyes or nostrils?

    Just to be safe, you might want to treat her for gapeworms.
