    My 3 yr. old buff started making a honking noise when she breathes. Her mouth is open when she makes this sound. If she is sitting quietly the honking stops and her mouth remains closed. She is eating and drinking and is active. Other hens are fine. I looked down her throat and I could not see any obstruction.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what is happening ? Any treatment thoughts?

    How is she doing? Is it more like a gurgle sound?
