I have one pet chicken, she's about 6 years old. Her flock mate of the same age died 6 months ago from an ovary infection. When I went to put her in her coop last night I noticed she was opening her beak and gasping for air. I cleaned her nose with wet cotton buds (no idea what else to do) and she did actually seem a little better surprisingly. But this morning her clucking didn't wake me up like normal, and she is still gasping. Not as badly as last night, but she's still opening her beak a little and her breathing seems labored. She has also been sneezing, and I think coughing. She's still hungry. Walking round pecking. No eye discharge. No nose discharge (her nose is still pretty clogged with dirt though). Comb is a good colour. And she's laid 4 days in row (which is unusual for her at her age). She had a lot of scraps yesterday, and her crop was very very full. (My parents have been overfeeding her on the christmas vege scraps.) And she still had some food in her crop this morning so I havn't given her her chicken feed yet. As she's a pet, and I've had her so long, and my other chicken died so recently, my first instinct is PANIC take her to vet. But I think I might be over reacting. Could her nose just be blocked? Or could it be caused by her eating too much?
