    Unless she seems depressed maybe this is her natural sound?

    So the question is what is she doing when she makes the squeak?

    I have a ButterCup that mades a sound like she is being attacked.

    The first time I heard it I ran out to see what was happening.

    Now I know it is just her "voice."

    Go figure.

    I have an americauna that quacks!!! This chicken has always been strange. She is really small, sneezes alot (always has) and doesnt lay. I dont know if her quacking has something to do with all of her other "issues" or not. I keep her around because she seems to struggle in life. Nobody picks on her she just seems to be the chicken that couldnt![​IMG]

    Some of mine squeak and even sneeze when I give them crack (cracked corn).

    I had one pullet we named Wheezy because she made a bad squeaking/wheezing noise. I was concerned that whatever was wrong might mean she had a respiratory problem that would make her susceptible to illness that could spread through the flock, so when it was rooster culling time we sent her to freezer heaven, too. When I was cleaning her we saw she had a little extra cartilage in her windpipe. Just a simple difference that gave her a unique "voice." I think she would have been fine.
