    I have a Cornish cross that started shaking her head a couple days ago. Tonight it sounds like she's sneezing. We plan to butcher next week. Should I be concerned?

    She could be coming down with a respiratory infection or sneezing due to dusty feed or conditions. If she has watery eyes or nasal drainage, I would separate her from the others in case it is infectious.

    Is she still safe to butcher?
