    Hello! I am so concerned for my chickens. They have been getting sick, sneezing, sleeping too much and I don't know what else to do. I have given them antibiotic Tetracycline for 7 days. Waited a few weeks as they were looking better, but sick again. Read of deworming them. I have given them Wazine three times already, with the 3 day break and same thing. Daily I give them basil, oregano. Their coops are cleaned daily.

    Any suggestions on what else I should do to help them?

    I took a video, but it won't let me attach. :(

    Sneezing, sleeping a lot during the day and sounds like loud snoring. Maybe as if she's having a hard time breathing? Neck goes up and down and eyes shut when sleeping. They are all (4 hens), eating and drinking plenty of water.

    Hello there, and welcome to Backyard Chickens! Is it a respritory infection? Mint can help with that. Give them some crushed garlic and or ginger. Good luck with them and I hope you enjoy BYC as much as I have!

    Thank you so much! I will try that. Do you know how long it may take for this remedy to work?
