    18 monthold ameracauna bantam hen making low wheezing noises. eating and drinking o..k. some sneezing but only a few times .just noticed this morning. It sounded like a baby kitten mewing very low, I went in side the coop and picked her up and noticed her beak slightly open when breathing. I put a drop of Nutri-Drench in her mouth and mixed up some in a waterer. Please help I don't have experience with sick chicks any advise will be greatly appreciated.,

    I think I might know what is the problem. Watch her drink. Does she stick her head in to far? If she does this then the water is running up her nose and making her sneeze. Young chickens are usually the ones to do this. I may be wrong though.
