    I have a Rhode Island red pullet I bought in late march. so she 4 months old. noticed had enlarged nostrils and was sneezing. I talked to vet ( I did not take her to vet) I only descrided her problems. He suggested it was an Upper resp infections. i gave her full round of antibiotics and seperated her from the rest of the flock. it has been a week she has more energy but is not really any better!

    Garlic sometimes helps breathing. You could crush some and give it to her.

    tms for a week! I got it from my vet but he did not examine her. her nostrils are even more inflammed today. I don't know what I should do w her. Or if I should just put her out of her misery. she sets off to the side of the flock at nite and during day she is all over eats drinks normal. and the other chickens DO NOT pic on her at all
