    As I was cleaning the duck pen this morning, I heard the strangest (but cutest) noise ever. After looking around and staring at the cat for a good thirty seconds, I determind that the sound is coming from my eldest hen Jordan. She's about three years old (I've had her for three years but she was already laying when I got her) and has NEVER sneezed before! Is she coming down with something? It's probably just the change in the weather but me being the over reactive hen-mom I am, I had to ask. She's otherwise her normal perky self, following me around as always.

    Chickens do sneeze every now and again. I wouldn't be concerned unless she starts doing it consistently and starts to show other signs of illness.
