    One of my hens has been sneezing for two days...at least I think it is sneezing. She lets out a quick unexpected CLUCK and when I turn to see her she has her beak open for a sec. She has been shaking her head alot too. Should I be concerned of an illness? There are no other symptoms and none of the other birds are doing it.
    Anybody been through this?

    That sounds weird to me. Maybe something is caught uncomfortably in her crop? Could you restrain her and peer down there with a flashlight? It might be something simple like that.

    I know sometimes my chickens sneeze. But it sounds unmistakably like a sneeze- like if a tiny person could would sneeze and it would sound identical.
