Daisy is having trouble breathing. She rattles, and is a bit wheezy.

Of course, all the books (and the internet) list dreadful problems linked to respiratory problems.    Fortunately (I hope) she doesn't have the other symptoms associated with the infectious diseases: her eyes are clear, she has no discharge from any orifice,  she's eating and drinking OK.

Despite the reassurance,  I'm concerned it may be bad news.  I'll be phoning the Vet tomorrow morning to arrange to take her in.


  1. often the vets do not know....sometimes hens have heart problems ( they run on incredibly high blood pressures)
    so she may have some degree of heart failure ( and has therefore has congested lungs)a course of antibiotics would do no harm either
    good luck
