So my chickens have been fine but suddenly after a run in the pen today, my Australorp, Laurel did a weird sneeze/cough as if she was trying to get something out of her nose/throat. Well, it's progressed to a weird wheezing noise when she breathes... here's a video of the noise: She doesn't have her mouth open as often as she has it closed while she's breathing. Which makes me think maybe it's in her nose and she feels as if she can't get enough oxygen so she opens her mouth? It's not really panting as much as just breathing through her mouth. I have tried olive oil down her throat and massaging her neck but neither has really helped per se. The time she stops is when she is laying down and relaxed... assuming that when she is relaxed, her breathing is softer, therefore whatever, if it is something blocking her breathing, isn't as much of a hindrance.. 1) What type of bird , age and weight (does the chicken seem or feel lighter or thinner than the others.) Australorp, 11-12 weeks. 2) What is the behavior, exactly. "heeeeeeee.... hawwwww..." noises when she breathes. Breathing through mouth occasionally. Sneeze/cough. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? Since around 7-8pm (it's about 1am now) 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? No 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. No 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. I don't know. They were in the pen all day like they are every other day. They just relaxed and ran around all day. Am fearful she got a rock that was too big stuck in her throat? 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Seems so... Crop felt like it had stuff inside and I got her to drink some water. But it's night time, she was tired and wanted to sleep, not eat/poop/drink. 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. I don't know. 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? A bit of Olive Oil. Antibiotics in water. Apple Cider Vinegar in water earlier... started antibiotics as soon as I heard her voice. 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? Treat myself... vet isn't really an option. 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. Video above. 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use. Bedding is pine bedding.. typical, been using it for a long time- same brand and everything. Outside pen is dirt and grass. It rained last night though so it was a bit damp out there. Also I've been reading and a lot say to separate but she grows distraught out when she is separated from the rest, which makes her breathing worse because she's not relaxed/sleeping (like I said above, breathing is softer when relaxed/sleeping, therefore whatever, if it is something blocking her breathing, isn't as much of a hindrance). Anyway, I am so afraid for my baby- she's my favorite chicken ( Please help ASAP. I want her to be okay.
