    Hello, My two year old Auracauna has been making a weird sound. With every breath she makes a sort of crying mooing sound. I have never heard any of my girls make this sound before. I am concerned. Any thoughts ??

    I first noticed it this morning while she was free ranging. No signs of distress or struggle, her best chicken friend was staying close by. After I returned home after being out all day, the sound seems more frequent, happening with each breath in and each breath out. I just gave them some scratch and she ate some. But she seems to be breathing a bit harder than normal. This particular chicken thinks I am going to cut her head off every time I get near her, so I have not yet attempted to pick her up to look her over in fear of really stressing her out.
