I have an Ameraucana chicken who suddenly got sick. She was fine during the day and started wheezing bad in the afternoon/evening. We separated her and put her in a warm room. Despite wheezing and sneezing, she continued to eat normally. She has the watery, green diarrhea and the brown diarrhea. Comb, wattles, legs, and eyes look normal. She laid an egg yesterday. This morning she is fine. No wheezing or sneezing. I suspect she still has diarrhea. The rest of the flock seem healthy. The only sign I've seen in her earlier (and the rest of the flock) is shaking her head as if she had a runny nose. We do not have a vet in the area who treats chickens. I am not sure what is wrong with her or what to do about it. I can't keep her where she is for long (laundry room). The flock consists of 3 other chickens and 3 ducks.
