    I'm not sure if they are actually hiccuping or not. when they get fed, they do this weird sort of of hiccup thing. It is just like a high pitched, loud cheep. Pretty much all of them do this and it is only at feeding time. Not sure if I should get worried about this, but just wanted to ask anyways.

    I think that they just try to pig out too fast and a little dry feed gets caught. It is their way of clearing their throat.
