I have a hen that has been making a noise like she has the hiccups. It isn't all the time. I was wondering if I should be concerned or not or if it is in fact hiccups.....She acts normal as far as eating, drinking is very healthy looking...Any ideas?

I think I know the noise...Dunch does it when she wants to be let out of the coop/run and go in the travel cage. It's a brrrawk brak brak brak brak brak...yes? It's normal, at least for my chicken. And I met others of her breed at a farm this weekend, they made similar noises.

If it's an occasional loud, high pitched "PIP", I have several that do it from time to time. I always think of it as a sneeze. Whatever it is, it appears normal around here.
