Ear infection? Do chickens get this... What about any signs of a runny nose? 

Maybe she has a fly stuck in her head? 

I had a bird once that was always so nervous that she would cock her eyes up toward the sky to make sure it wasn't falling.  Sometimes she would duck.  These birds are so silly!  Maybe it's a nervous tick, or an excited one.

I hope someone else who knows more than I do chimes in.  cool

I'm no one to ask for advice, but I would catch each one and look them over.
Look in the mouth for anything that should not be there.

Mites, lice, gape worm are just some possibilities.
