    I have a chicken that sounds like she has the hiccups! Is this normal? Did she eat straw and it coughing? Is she sick??? I have no idea!!!

    Hiccups... you might have to explain more and give more details on other behavior, change in behavior, living situation, age, feed, and so on.

    She seems ok today. I think she may have had a piece of straw stuck in her throat. I have no idea how old she is - maybe 10-12 months, and we feed them laying mash, scratch and fruits and veggies. It was the weirdest noise.
