    what do you suggest for coughing and congestion? No other signs. Everything else is normal. I did a nasal flush and nothing changed.

    Hi, Pinenot.

    If it's a cold, I read somewhere that garlic is good for that. When I hear my chix sneeze a couple of times (and can't attribute it to dust-bathing) I chop up a clove of garlic real fine and mix it in with something they like, such as mashed potatoes or polenta. I think the garlic kind of disgusts them at first (judging by how fast they wipe off their beaks) but eventually they eat it all up - they've never gotten any worse than sneezing. At any rate, it couldn't hurt. Good luck!
