    When is she doing this - is it after she has eaten, when you approach her, etc.? How often does she do it? Is she stretching her neck up and out to the front, with or without the beak opening or is it more of a jerky side-to-side type of action?

    Does she prance around while she does it?

    Mine sometimes prances around and moves her head from side to side. She's just skittish. I was wondering if yours could be anything like that...

    Good. I'm not really sure what to tell you. Do you have any roosters though?

    Well when we brought her home at 4 weeks we also got another Easter Egger which turned out to be a rooster we had to get rid of him cause our neighbor hood were not allowed to have rooster so we just have 5 hens
