    My much loved hen is breathing funny and sneezing a LOT, she only breathes through her mouth and it's really loud.

    She shound more like a goose than a hen at the moment and I feel bad for her.

    She was a bit unwell a couple of weeks back with weird pacing and panting but I thought she'd completely recovered.

    She's happily running round and laying, not acting unwell at all. She just wheezes and sneezes. It doesn't look as if her nose is blocked but that's my first guess.

    Any thoughts or help anyone might have is appreciated!

    Actually after having a good look UP her nose it does appear blocked with black stuff. It's quite high up, not at the entrance to her nostril.

    No idea how to clear it :(
     
  3. only thing i can say is see if the vet can help her
