    My 11 month old Orpington hen is making a wheezing noise with her mouth open and every couple minutes she has a violent sneeze, does anybody know what is wrong with her? :( should we separate her?

    I am just learning this myself so bear with me:) Yes, I would separate her. I have the same problem with two of my chickens as well. Wheezing, sneezing with mucous flying. In my case it is most likely a respiratory infection such as coryza. I am giving mine 800mg of duramiacin in their water. One had goopy eyes as well and she is improving but discovered another sick one today wheezing. Feeding them scrambled eggs, oatmeal and applesauce. Also water mixed with crumbles. I'm giving them the antibiotics for ten to fourteen days. (Basically 1.5 tbs per gallon of water) Hope this helps a little.

    Thank you to the both of you for answering. We added some medicine to her water but she wasn't eating or drinking anything. The wheezing started Thursday, she was worse Friday so we took her to the vet and he said she had a respitory issue. He gave as some medicine to give her and when we got home her comb started to turn purple and she started having convulsions and she passed away.
