    She is opening and closing her mouth like she throwing up. Nothing coming out Not making any noise Now she is in her dust bath just laying there eyes closing. My 2 buffs are near her like they know something is wrong.

    It sounds like yawning. They open their mouths really big. Keep an eye on her!

    This doesn't sound like yawning. It could be gapeworm or a breathing issue.

    Thanx y'all she seems to be okay. Went back to see her and she's being her ornery self. First time raising chickens. She gave me a scare.

    It's a still shot from my video. It wouldn't let me upload a video. I didn't see her this morning I leave my house at 5am. It looked too forced to be a yawn. When I get home I'll check on her. Thanks for the concern.
