    I'm calling them hiccups for lack of a better descriptor. This is my friend's rumpless Araucana. She's been doing this weird hiccuping thing for months- I'd guess at least 2-3. No other weird symptoms and she lays just fine.

    I took a short video so you can get an idea of what I mean.



    Anyone ever had something like this?

    STRANGE!! Hopefully, you'll hear from a few people who've had this with their hens. I'm clueless. Sorry. [​IMG]
