A chicken respiratory infection is like when you get a cold. Their sinuses can swell and cause eyes to water, and sometimes there's facial swelling. Like our colds, it often gets better on its own.

However, there are serious respiratory infections and one can cause sores inside the mouth, and these sores can be painful and make it difficult for a chicken to eat and to swallow. This kind of respiratory infection needs to be treated with an oral antibiotic such as Tylosin.

As @Wyorp Rock mentioned, you should look inside the hen's mouth to see if there are these sores. If you see these sores, then you will know that the hen is seriously sick and needs an antibiotic.

So go look now, and let us know what you see.

How did the chicken get fungal pneumonia? Does that mean the chickens are breathing in mold spores which in turn lowers their immune system?
