    I went outside to check on my chickens and one of them was making this bawking/honking noise. That's the best way I can describe it..they are chirping and its too early for it to be bawking.(plus its not a usual sounding one if it is)

    They do this and shake their head I think they may have got something up their nose but I'm not sure.

    I'm worried and wondering what i should do??

    Do they do it often? If they only do it every now and then, that's pretty normal. It usually just means they choked on some water they were drinking, or some trivial thing like that.

    thanks for the response. So that's what it could be... I checked on them again and it stopped! He sounds funny a bit but not bad.
    I'm still a new chicken parent so anything they do is alarming!(but normal to them)
    I'll keep an eye on them but thank you for this info.
