    My 3 Rhode Island Red 7 week old pullets every once in a while look like they are yawning but I'm not sure if this is something else? They sort of look up open their mouths then nothing....

    They look fine, are growing just normal, normal feathers, behavior is great eat more than plenty and are drinking water...I've had them outside in the coop for a week now with the light out there as well...

    Anyone have ideas on what this is?

    Hi and Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Sounds like they are just yawning to me, especially since everything else (health, growth, eating and drinking) is normal.

    Hope this is some help!
