    I was just outside feeding everybody and I noticed that one of my BR pullets (15 weeks old) sounds like she has a stuffy nose. When she breathes, it sounds like we do with a stuffy nose.

    Has anyone heard of this or know what I can do?

    put some garlic in their water, it helps with respiratory problems.

    it might be a wise move to separate this bird so you can monitor her closer (and if it is infectious or a respiratory disease this will be best for the rest of your flock). I would also give a good general nutritional/vitamin supplement such as Avia Charge 2000 (you can order online from McMurray or Strombergs) and give this to all your birds.

    I will order some of that right now.

    How much garlic do I need to put in their water?

    I put a couple of smashed up ones in a gallon waterer.
