    Lethargic, heavy rapid breathing.. and most concerning the hiccup/cough noise.

    The bird still eats, although I am not sure if it is drinking much.

    This is 1 of the 12 meat chickens I am raising for the first time.

    I need to decide whether whatever it is afflicted with can be easily treated or if I should humanely put it down.
