Hello everyone! I am in need of help identifying what's wrong with my chicken and then what to do for her. For the past week she has been wheezing, sneezing, and squeaking. Not clucking or making normal noises. I figured it was respiratory issues and stress (a bob cat got into the run last week and killed two of my girls), so I upped the ACV in her water and added some basil and cinnamon into the feed as I have read that they help their respiratory systems. She's been eating and drinking this whole time. Well this morning when I went out to the coop she was really gasping for air. She would breathe in and then stretch her neck way out to exhale and she wheezes/squeaks when she does this. I separated her and called the vet. They wouldn't give me any suggestions over the phone, they just wanted me to take her in for x-rays to see if something was stuck in her throat. Well I can't afford to pay $175 for X-rays. Her crop felt hard and was just smaller then a tennis ball. So I started giving her olive oil in a syringe and massaging her crop every few hours. I've also withheld food. Her crop is now about the same size, but is now squishy and she's still breathing the same, especially after being handled for the massage. When I hold her like a football it's almost like it pushes something up and she can't breathe well at all. But when she's calm and resting in the crate she breathes better. Still opened beak breathing, but it's not as labored. I'm just not sure if it's something stuck in her throat, respiratory issues, or impacted and/or sour crop. Anyone have any idea and suggestions??
