Gagging chick. Is something wrong?

I have a 4 week old chick that looks like it's gagging. It stretches its head up and opens its mouth wide. It does this a couple of times a minute. I saw it drink, but I don't know if it's eating. If something is stuck in its throat, can he cough it up? Do chickens cough?
He can indeed cough something up - Does he seem to be acting entirely fine? If everything else seems fine (walking, peeping occurence, etc), it just might be a normal behavior. I see chicks do this every once in a while. . .
