    I had my polish hen aspirate on something a few weeks back. I was able to clear her airway and get her started on antibiotics. She's made a great recovery, but now when she drinks, I can hear it go down her throat like when you swallow something funny, like a drink of water with a lot of air. I don't know how else to describe it! Like I can hear it travel down her throat. Just wondering if maybe this is just my bird, and I haven't noticed it before, or if this is a new thing since choking. Any thoughts? Anyone else's birds sound funny when they drink?
