    I am posting mostly to bump you up in case anyone else has info for you.

    My hens will sneeze sometimes. It is something like that but not exactly. Is she wiggling her head around like she has something caught in her throat?

    I would watch her weight and her comb color and check for discharge but if this is the only symptom I would not worry too much.

    Thank you for your response it's really strange but i agree sounds like something may be stuck and she is trying to get it out or it triggers her to do that. I just hope my girls are not getting sick cause i just adore them!
