    Our Easter Egger has been squeaking for a while. I don't think they are sneezes. Her nostrils are never wet. She only seems to do it when she is walking around. Does not make the noise while roosting. Just curious if anyone has ever had a chicken do this, and is it normal. I thought since we rescued this chicken as a pullet perhaps it's a result of poor nutrition. I've also thought it could be seasonal because she seems to be doing it more since the beginning of winter. Any comments or thoughts??
