Lilith sneezes once or twice a day, has since she was a chick. She is the picture of health. Lays regularly.
What do you think? Is it just her?

Could be she is particularly sensitive to something in her environment. Honestly, I have some birds who sneeze when they eat too fast or dustbathe. Ivy is the worst about sneezing when she eats, always has been. In the absence of other symptoms, I wouldn't worry.

Thanks speckled! I knew I could count on a true chicken guru to assure me.
Tonight I thought I heard her sneeze, but nope she had the hiccups! Funniest dang thing I've ever seen!

my meaties get hiccups all the time from gobbling down their food. it is hilarious sounding, isn't it?


i agree with the Speckled one! just like people, cats, dogs etc. it is a healthy way to clear our sinuses and get rid of dust/dirt.


enjoy those hiccups!
