When I was a-growin' (up not out) hens would sometimes suffer from 'gape', at least that is what we called it. The symptoms were an open mouth and the hen unable to breathe. The cure was to put a paper bag with sulphur powder over the hen's head and force her to breath the powder.
Does anybody know what the condition was/is and the right name for it ?
