    One of our chickens keeps shaking her head. She started about two weeks ago and once in a while she will cough. What do we do for her?

    Ear mites are another possible cause I've heard of.

    But my guess would be your hen has a respiratory problem & is trying to clear mucus in her throat or nose.
