Thank you for the information.. none of those other symptoms are occurring and today it's back to normal.. Can they get stuff caught in their crop

Good news. Yes having liquid or mucus in the throat from a full crop can cause gurgling. Since he is much better, that may be what the problem was. Chickens don't have any sphincter keeping food and water from coming back up when their heads are down. That's why you can see water dripping out of their mouths after drinking when their head is down.
