    My two year old Wyandotte hen has been wheezing but almost clucking at the same time. She's definitely sounding like a pullet of mine that got pneumonia last winter. I've done everything I did for the pullet who got better. But this hen isn't showing much different in her sounds but she is behaving just fine, I didn't see anything lodged in her throat and she won't eat very much. I have no idea how she got sick it's the beginning of summer here no cold and she's in a dry run with all my other birds who are beyond healthy in fact they are looking great I'm getting them ready for some shows. I'm worried the change to the other birds some how may have effected her I dunno. If any one has any ideas let me know. Like I said she isn't acting to off just sounds like she's sick.

    Perhaps you should isolate and start on antibiotics

    I did as soon as her odd sounds started up, she just stopped making the weird sounds but she isn't acting exactly like her healthy self yet.
