    I have a one year old buff orpington hen that free ranges all day.

    When I came home tonight she ran up to me like always to see if I had treats.

    She sounds like she has a harmonica stuck in her throat. It is like wheezing, in and out there are sounds with each breath.

    She is acting fine and seems not in distress, but I know this is not normal.

    Any Ideas?

    could be something caught in her throat. might try giving her something soft like maybe a bit of yogurt with some honey or olive oil to see if that would help. and just keep an eye on her in case something else should develop.
