I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on June, please? Which type of bird is she? How old is she? What has her diet consisted of?

You've described a bird in serious respiratory compromise often caused by infection (bacterial, viral, fungal, parasitic) +/- hypovitaminosis - a lack of vitamin A in her diet.
