My 5 month old feather foot buff Brahma started wheezing tonight. At first it sounded like, "HEEEE Haaaw". My chicks free range and I was outside most of the day with them. All day normal eating, drinking, running around until about 6 pm when Dixie Chick ran by me making that awful noise. I didn't pay much attention to it until I checked the coop around 8pm . Dixie was sitting in a nesting box, still wheezing. I scooped her up and brought her inside while frantically searching BYC. Thinking maybe something was stuck, I gave her some bread soaked in olive oil. Then I gave her water. No change. I looked down her throat and couldn't see anything .I even stuck my finger down her throat! Nada. Read a post about VetRx. Warmed some up with water and used an eyedropper to put some down her throat. Rubbed her beak, nostrils, ears, comb and under her wings. No sneezing. No discharge. No mucus. Noise changed to more of a squeaky rocking chair . She's definitely breathing through her mouth. She's not really closing her beak at all . Right now I have her in a crate (because my husband won't let her sleep in our bed!) on a heating pad with an essential oil vaporizer. (Theives, oregano, lavender and lemon) It's 1am and I'm just laying here listening to her. Sounds keep changing. Definitely calling the vet in the am. I try to avoid antibiotics both personally and with my little flock . I don't want her to suffer. Do you think she's in pain? Any other suggestions to help her breathe easier? With no other symptoms, could it still be a respiratory infection?
