    Last night I noticed one of my hens wheezing. It was hot and I thought she was just panting hard.This morning she is still wheezing. It seems somewhat worse that last night but not much. I've never given medication to any chickens. What can I do for her and will this go through the flock? Should I quarantine her and if so, how far from the flock? Thanks.

    you can try giving her terramycin..but I prefer Tylan 50 injectable..
    available at farm/feed/livestock suppliers in the LIVESTOCK section.
    you'll also need some syringes and needles..(3cc syringes/22-25 gauge needles)
