    Coughing is normally and indication of a respiratory infection. I would start putting Apple Cider vinegar along with a clove of garlic in her water ASAP. 1 tsp of ACV per gallon.

    Apple Cider Vinegar. Many people believe that it prevents or cures chicken diseases. It won't hurt your chicken.

    Don't put it into a metal container, it reacts with metal. Don't use it if you are putting any other medication or treatment in the water.
