A short video uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo with a link posted here could help. Some chickens can make a sound of stridor if they get a small piece of food or a mucus plug stuck in the airway. It can clear up within a few hours. If it persists and you see sneezing, watery eyes,head shaking, or nasal drainage, it could be a respiratory disease. Here is a video of stridor:

Let us know if this stridor clears up today or tomorrow. If she is not in any distress, I would probably let her out with her flock to go about the day. If she has any other symptoms, let us know. Stridor is usually a temporary symptom that goes away, but sometimes it can be a symptom of a respiratory infection. That would include the other symptoms in my previous post.

I used to have a hen who ate very fast, and she would get this every now and then. It always went away overnight. There are numerous threads here on BYC about similar experiences with temporary stridor that go away.
