I've got one of my Ameraucanas which is constantly making a hee-haw kind of wheeze and then about every 30 seconds or so, she hiccups. I've had to have my girls penned for the last week, I normally let them have free reign of the backyard. I've taken her out of the pen, since she doesn't seem like she's going anywhere, but she is still wheezing and hiccuping. It almost sounds like there is something stuck in her throat or chest but I can't see anything down her throat when I open her mouth up. Otherwise she seems to be in good health, i.e. eyes are clear, stool is normal, feathers are fine. I have a feeling that if I don't figure out what's wrong, she doesn't have much time to live. If anyone has any ideas feel free to contact me directly at 917-687-8773. She's just walking around now breathing hard. I'm even considering trying to do somekind of chicken heimlich manuvuer, but I'm not sure if that could make it worse.
