Hey guys, I have a Marans hen that is having some real trouble breathing. Ever since I got her she has always breathed with a bit of a raspy sound and with her mouth open (for about 8 months), but in the last two days it has gotten worse. She keep 'coughing/ honking' (like when they gobble down too much food way to fast) and extending her neck out likes shes reaching out to grab more air. I have washed plenty of water down her throat and even tipped her upside down to clear out her crop but she continues with her troubled breathing. Ive also looked down her throat and their doesn't seem to be and blockages. She was alright yesterday for a bit and I thought she was finally ok but I came down this morning to find her back the way she was. Her comb and wattles have gone a deep reddy purple (lack of oxygen I guess) and she doesn't like to walk around much, just sit in the shade and concentrate on breathing. I haven't check around her neck externally so perhaps she has a hole in her throat? I will check that soon.
