    I have a chicken that the best way to describe it squeaks like a dog toy instead of their normal sound. Is that normal or is something wrong?

    They sometimes do that when they have a slight respiratory issue. I occasionally hear it, but usually after a few days they stop it. It's like a cough and sneeze together.
