Do chickens get laryngitis? Right around Christmas, Hazel (1 of 4) started sounding raspy. I gave her colloidal silver and apple cider vinegar and she started sounding better. She's been acting fine, no discharge or other symptoms but while she sounded like Darth Vader for awhile now she just sounds like she has laryngitis and no cluck. Update: I was just out locking up the coop and saw that she is eating pellets but when she gobbled up some scratch from my hand she kind of coughed it out. She seems to be opening her beak a lot and just a slight hissing sound comes out. She doesn't appear to be in pain but not sure what to do. When she got on the roost, I felt her throat and it felt the same as the others but I'm not a chicken anatomy expert either (just a first-time chicken owner and worried about her). I haven't noticed any other unusual behavior. I welcome any thoughts!
