    My 5 week old chicke is doing something very similar to this video. I don't know what it is. I am going to start doing some electrolytes, but idk what she is doing. She is a red star hen from murray mcmurray. Not vaxinated.

    She might be adjusting her crop. What does her crop feel like? Does it feel empty, full, soft, or hard? Is she doing it often? Sometimes that type of movement constantly may be neurological.
