    one of my chickens is making a weird sound, kinda like a squeaky cough. He is acting totally normal, chasing the others around, eating etc. Just has this weird squeaky cough. Has anyone experienced anything like this??

    Could it be a sneeze instead? Chickens tend to sneeze specialy when they are eating.

    No, I don't think so....I have heard them sneeze on occasion after dust bathing etc... this sounds different. He will do this when just walking around or what ever. Wish I could describe it better.... [​IMG]
