    I've got a hen that is 100% (eating, running, frisky as ever) but this morning she started with a raspy crow. She doesn't have labored breathing or anything, it's just when she crows it sounds very raspy for her. Should I be worried if there are really no other symptoms than this? Can a hen lose her voice or something???

    Does she normally crow? Also, are you sure she's a female?

    Raspiness can be a symptom of some diseases, worth searching for disease databases and looking up the symptoms.

    Best wishes.
