    Hi! One of my 11 week old chickens is making the weirdest noise. It's like a nasally hacking sound sort of. It's odd and she does it all the time now. It's like she's crying or hurt of something. Any ideas?[​IMG] [​IMG]

    sneezing maybe? Mine sneeze sometimes, even a lot when diggin, in the dirt. Not sure though... would need to hear it. Could it be respiratory perhaps...

    Thank You. And to me it sounds more like a goose or a duck even not the regular peeping my others chickens make.

    There is another thread going on right now that perhaps you saw that asks about chickens sounding like a goose. Here is a link. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=556601 I have a 17 week old pullet who has sounded like a goose honking up until recently, when she started sounding more like a chicken. Others on here have reported their chickens making what sound like honking sounds at times. Must be normal.
