    Ok is it normal for a chicken to yawn every 6-10 seconds for like 2 minutes? One of my pullets does this ever few days or so. She's alert and active and acting just fine just her yawning fits lol Looks kinda silly

    It's some kind of disease where there is a huge worm in the throat I think.

    "gaping" is a symptom I think.

    Make a new post "Help with Gaping" in diseases/pests. I don't know much about it yet. [​IMG]
