    My Orpington is stretching her neck out and yelling out like she is in distress. I have a video of it. Can anyone take a look and tell me if they might have experienced or seen this before? I am so worried about her! I apologize for some reason I couldn't get the video to load. Here it is please review it! I believe she may have some sort of respiratory but not sure what in the world could have caused it!

    I've typically found this to be associated with choking on feed. It typically resolves itself within a day or two, although I did have a friend with a bird who's issue lasted several months. I've never found it to have relations to infectious respiratory diseases, though.
