    After laying her egg today my Cochin Bantam became very excited and boisterous....She usually does this. At one point she squeaked. Now she makes a sound similar to whining when she inhales and exhales. Sounds similar to loud singing with a very nice vibrato. What could this be and is it serious? Oh yesÂ…She is eating just fine.

    Who knows? If she is eating, her comb is a good colour and she is moving around and doing normal hen things then don't worry. If she is standing around listless or her tail is down then you may have a problem.
