Hello,

Sometimes my bantam BR just does a high pitched whiny scream for no reason. Her beak stays closed and her face turns beet red. She is never in any danger when she does it. Just wondering what it could be...

My girls sometimes do that too. But I can relate it to nothing so I guess it's just one of those mysterious chicken-things they do.

It's the infamous "I hear/see something that bothers me!" noise. Most of the time, people are too oblivious to really latch onto the 'threat' that their bird is drawn to. It's how chickens warn each other. Sometimes, when ones does it, the others will chorus in and join along. It kinda reminds me of a few aliens soundings together.

I think mine did if they thought I was overstepping the bounds of what they considered tolerable chicken-feeder behavior in their coop (Moved big feed bags around, etc.).
