    Please watch my Yokohama video. I just got home from work at 4:30 am and my son said My white Yokohama was acting funny so he brought it onto the patio out of the coop, to keep an eye on it.

    BTW It's 65 degrees here tonight, so shes warm enough. Anyone please help...I'm not going to be able to sleep until I know what to do.

    Here is the video and below a picture of her poop..this poop is on the back of a strap chair she perched on...It looking bad to me.

    If you crank your volume on the video you can hear her breathing, and she keeps doing that shake and grunting loud.

    we moved her there to isolate her. Thats just pine shavings. This started in her normal cage without shavings.

    I know but some shavings will release dust and that could irritate her sinuses. [​IMG] she'll be fine. She just has a cold but try and keep her isolated.

    Technically, chickens don't get head colds like humans do. That said, I have a Brahma hen who always sneezes when the eats. She is not ill because she's done this for two years now and has no symptoms other than sneezing fits on occasion. Not sure why, could be she has a piece of corn or something that got into her sinuses and it's irritating her. No one else does this like my Caroline. She may have something in her nose she's trying to work out, but if there is no discharge at all, I'd say it's environmental.
