    My 1.5 year old RIR hen is making a gurgling noise. It's been a few weeks, she is showing absolutely no other signs of illness, she is very energetic, laying eggs, etc. She is just making this gurgling noise, it sounded just like my meat chickens on the one brutally hot day they ran out of water for a little bit. Everyone was gurgling. It's not super loud, but I have no idea what it could be? Any ideas??

    She's gargling. Wrong answer, but nontheless, first answer. Pay up! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Has she been wormed lately? they can get throat worms. May be a resporatory illness, I would start on antibiotics just in case, & worm. Good luck.
    Anybody else have any suggestions?
