    Hello,
    My flock looks like they are having are hard time eating. When they eat, they are pretty noisy and it sounds like they're making little sneezing noises. After they take a bite of food, they sometimes crane their neck up and shake it back and forth! Any help would be appreciated. Thank you:)

    How old are the birds in question? How long have you been noticing this behavior? Have you recently changed feed? What form (crumble, pellet, etc) are you feeding?
