My chicken Berry- along with the whole flock has dry pox. I've been putting antibiotic ointment on them for about a week. The scabs are looking better. However Berry has developed a sneeze and it sounds like a gurgling sore throat and she breathes through her mouth and I can see her throat rapidly moving in and out. I don't see yellow lesions in her mouth- boy is is hard to get a chicken to open their mouth. Please advise. I've filled out this form: Th anks so much community! 1) What type of bird , age and weight (does the chicken seem or feel lighter or thinner than the others.)
