    There is something wrong with my Rhode Island red hen, she has been acting weird for the past couple of weeks, she'll stop and twist her head around like there is something in her neck. Here is a video of her, , do you know what is wrong with her?

    Have you could checked her eyes and ears for any sign of infection or blockage -- also her nose holes? She could have a problem in her neck or throat that you can't see. Just thoughts.

    maybe something is stuck in her throat? or a growth. I suggest you ask a vet feel around on her neck to see if you can feel anything.
