Chicken touching her beak to her stomach and walking backwards quickly

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I had written about my wheezing hen. Presently she's not improving with her wheezing despite giving her good vitamins, electrolytes and probiotics. She's still eating well and active. But now she's developed this thing where out of the blue she'll tuck her head towards her stomach and walk backwards quickly. She'll do this a couple of times while I'm tending to the flock. Does anyone know if this is related to her wheezing or something else?

I have no clue
Could you post a video that would help see what is wrong with her

I recall seeing a thread on this subject just last week. Maybe if you try searching for it you may get some info that may help.

 

Good luck
