My chicken is struggling to breath, what might this be?

We recommend getting advice for any breathing issues as chickens will often show no signs of illness until they are very sick. There are a number of different pathogens that can cause a chicken to breathe abnormally including viruses, bacterial infections and parasites. If you notice this in one of your chickens it would be worthwhile to isolate her in a quiet and relaxing place before seeing the vet, in case it is a contagious condition.
