    My black hen in the back of this video is making some really strange sounds. Any idea what could be wrong with Her? She eats, doesn't seem the least bit lethargic, and no other signs of distress.

    If she was in the middle of laying or about to lay it may have just been because of that. Sometimes my hens will make a barking like sounds... They kind of run around the perimeter of the pen and make almost a hard clucking sound (almost like that of a dog) until they go into a nesting box to lay an egg. I think your hen is just fine.
