My brooding hen is doing something I've never seen before, and I'm concerned. She's opening her beak and throat really wide- if it were a person I'd think she was wretching. She looks at me and makes this bizarre, wide- mouthed, wide throated motion. She's not uttering a sound. She is due to ahtch today. Is she telling me to stay away, or is she sick?
