It's like wheezing then coughing
Oh no! I quickly googled and found this thread which links to a couple of possibilities. Good luck!
It looks like the membrane at the front of her eye is also partially covering it. If so, looks like perhaps early stages of sinusitis.
Oh well if if dies it dies, natural selection at its finest
Is it on medicated feed?
If not maybe you want to try it.
After all that is what it is made for.
No, it's not.
Medicated feed is dosed with Amprolium, which fights the effects of coccidiosis. If the bird has sinusitis, Tylan or another approved antibiotic will be necessary for a quick recovery and avoidance of secondary symptoms.
If it is sinusitis, could be something else.
Tylan is not an antibiotic.
When I had black head the vet came over and dosed the flock with Amprolium.
He said it was a good idea because they could have had a little of coccidiosis that lead to further weaken immune systems that would allow other infection etc in.
The bird could have pneumonia or a e-coli pneumonia.
Tylan is tylosin and is most certainly an antibiotic. http://www.drugs.com/vet/tylosin.html
For a diagnosis, consult a veterinarian.
I'm sorry. She looked like a nice hen.
