    Hello Friends,

    One of our chickens started making a constant, low noise, with intermittent squeaks. We have quarantined it from the flock. Here is a short video showing the noise and squeaks:



    What do you think?

    Thank you dearly!

    i think that if she isn't showing and other problems that she probably is fine, and odd noises are ones that have to do with their breathing

    It sounds like she is wheezing and sneezing and seems to be in distress. Can you get another video of her that show her more clearly?
    Any signs of discharge from the nose/eyes?
    What does her poop look like?
    How old is she?
    Is she eating drinking?

    Thank you all so much! Maybe she had a piece of food lodged in her throat? Whatever it was, she is thankfully back to normal today! We so appreciate your time and help!

    Glad to hear she is doing ok!
    Yes, those noises/actions could very well have been food something stuck in her throat.
