I have a black Cochin bantam that isn’t doing well. She is a little overweight band also has some respiratory issues. She’s sneezing and coughing quite a bit. None of our other gals have this issue.
im not sure if she has worms or gapes or something but she is one of my favorites and I really don’t want to loose her. Ideas on what’s going on with her and/or how to treat her? Thanks

Do you see any eye bubbles/foam, or swelling around an eye or the face? Respiratory diseases can be from viruses where antibiotics do not help, or from bacteria where some antibiotics may help. If it is a virus, it will run it’s course over time. Unless you see eye bubbles or swelling of the face, I would just give supportive care and make sure that she is eating, drinking, and her nostrils stay clean.
