    My 3 year old Orpington has had constant hiccups or something like a hiccup for a month. She appears normal except for this constant sound. Any ideas?

    Can you post a video of the sound? Upload videos to youtube, then provide us a link-the BYC video link does not work.

    Check her crop to make sure it's emptying overnight and look at her nostrils and inside her beak for any obstructions.

    Thank you! I have checked her nostrils and crop during this time and appears normal.

    Sneezing or chirping from a respiratory infection such as infectious bronchitis or from irritation (dust in food, mold, environmental reasons) can sound like hiccups. Sometimes people post short videos to YouTube with a link here for us to see or hear what you are seeing.
