    My hen keeps on making "tik" noises when she moves her head and at night she sleeps with 3 other chickens, 2 Baby ones about 1 and a half month old and one about 3 months old.
    sometimes it wheezes and she moves her head when she sleeps up and down. What do i do

    Sounds a lot like gapeworm! Please research it, they could cut off the breathing of you chicken, nasty little things.

    Have you wormed your chickens at all or lately?


    Does she keep her mouth open a lot like shes gasping?
