    My Golden Laced Wyondotte is wheezing badly on this 100 degree day in Northern Cal. We've had hotter days, and I've never heard a bird make this noise. I'm trying to upload it to Youtube and it's slow, DH and I are freaking a little so I'm posting wo/ the vid.

    I've moved her into our air conditioned living room, Fifteen minutes, no change.

    A few others are making similar sounds but not nearly so severely.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Should I soak her in cool water to get her temp down?

    I think they are reacting to some bad straw.

    It looks like it had some mold.
