    I thought it would just go away but it hasn't. No other chickens are making the sound. She seems fine otherwise. Any advice?

    This sounds like what my hen was doing. Is she active? Does she eat and drink?

    Probably it is a sneeze or a snick, although I can't see a video. This can be common in most chickens on occasion, especially if there is powdery feed or dust around. If the chicken does it frequently, I would look for any nasal or eye drainage, gasping, or labored breathing which could be signs of a respiratory disease, such as infectious bronchitis or others. Here is a list of many common diseases to read about: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
