    If she has done this for just one day, I would not be concerned. Mine do it some days when I let them out. It can be caused when they eat something they don't like or when the eat a piece of grass too large for them to swallow. Another thing could be that she has mites/lice around her chin or earlobes. Last but not least, and is very rare, it could be gapeworm. However, I just think she ate something she was not able to swallow.

    silkie1472,

    Thanks for your reply.

    And yes I just noticed today and I am sure today its her first day doing this so I think its just what you say, something she did not like, will keep an eye on her, thanks!!

    God bless.
