    New to Backyard chickens, and never posted in a forum before so please bare with me. I have a hen (Fannie) that has been wheezing for about 5 months now. I have 4 hens, all about a year old, and all laying just fine, except one that is molting, and the other 3 seem just fine. When Fannie started the wheezing she was miserable for a few days and I assumed the worst, but then she got better and has acted normal since then except for the wheezing, and i don't even know if I would call it wheezing, but more like damaged vocal cords because she makes no clucking noises or anything. I have done much research but can't seem to find any information anywhere about what it could be since it has been going on so long.
