My 3-4 week old buff Orpington keeps making a yawning motion since yesterday and has us worried she may have swallowed something that is causing a problem. The last 3 days have been around 90degrees so we have let them free range inside our garden enclosure, which seems to be a safe daytime spot for them. All I can think is that maybe she swallowed a rock or piece of a stick that may be stuck? No idea, please advise. Thank you!!!!!
