    So, our girls respiratory issue is hanging around and isn't going away, so we're taking her to the vet.
    My main question is how to cause the least amount of stress in the process?

    Should I bring another chicken with her so she's not alone?

    Let her see out or keep her in the dark...literally?

    Thanks for any advice!

    Take her alone, dark with good air supply. Chickens are much calmer in the dark.
