EMERGENCY!!!! Something is wrong with my Orpington!!!!! PLEASE HELP!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My Orpington is stretching her neck out and yelling out like she is in distress. I have a video of it. Can anyone take a look and tell me if they might have experienced or seen this before? I am so worried about her! I apologize for some reason I couldn't get the video to load. Here it is please review it! I believe she may have some sort of respiratory but not sure what in the world could have caused it! http://youtu.be/xEwroldETPU

I've typically found this to be associated with choking on feed. It typically resolves itself within a day or two, although I did have a friend with a bird who's issue lasted several months. I've never found it to have relations to infectious respiratory diseases, though.
