    Hi,
    I am new to raising chickens and noticed tonight as my 3 15 week old girls sat on my lap that my barred rock was making a gagging motion every so often. She wasn't making any noise as she did this, but seems a bit more tired than her usual self. Any ideas?

    If they are eating sometimes the dry food can hang up a bit. Keep an eye on her and see if she doesn't stop.

    Pip don't seem to be gagging anymore. It probably was, like you said, welasharon, that she had some food stuck... she is so food centered, I am not too surprised. Thanks for the reply!
