I have a cochin hen that is wheezing,she was doing that a couple weeks ago so I treated the whole flock with duramycin-10 in the water for 7 days.She was fine then tonight I heard her wheezing again.I am going to separate her from the rest of the flock,what else can I give her.She is eating and drinking,her comb is red but she does look a little thin.

sometimes,I have her separated and giving her duramycine-10,she is better but will keep her on it for 14 days,thinking 7 days was not enough before.She hates being in a cage,shes not going to have any beak or toenails left by the time this done
